The real pirates

Alex Cox, the director who made the great Repo Man, provides a feisty riposte to corporate Hollywood’s stance on copyright piracy. “When the MPAA complains that it is losing billions to piracy, my first reaction is, so what?”

He continues, “Corporate multinationals, wielding unchecked power, terrify me far more than kids with video cameras. In fact, the latter… encourage me greatly: their resourcefulness and creativity — rather than the special pleading and restrictive practices of the MPAA — represent a possible bright future for our industry.”
