A Free Movie - A bit of a story here...
« on: March 29, 2012, 06:59:09 AM »
So, I'm checking the YouTube channel for this one movie, and they've got this:



Surprise announcement - they're going free in a few days! (April 5th.)

They needed to pay for everything, as you can imagine, but now that they've managed to cover all their bills, they're making the movie FREE!

Compare that to the media mafia model - Charge as much as possible for as long as possible then fight in court to extend the copyright life, retroactively, and sue everyone you possibly can, all the while making ludicrous claims about losing money orders of magnitude larger than the entire industry.


I'd say that I've lost some respect for the media mafia, but that would be lying as I have none. I think I just have a bit more contempt for them than I used to. :P ;D

The movie is now available for free. It's a bit over 2 hours long and almost 2 GB, so you might want to download it with something like YouTubeDownloader or whatever.

Well that was. . . interesting.

I had no idea what it was about when I started watching it.

And when it's done, it's in a totally different space...

Yeah -- I didn't know that it would be that intense. I've heard a lot of that elsewhere, but their presentation was excellent!

It was much different that what I was expecting, but still, I very much enjoyed it, and can appreciate their scholarship in the documentation they provide. THAT IS GOLD!
