This is an event at this year’s Edinburgh Film Festival. From the event’s advertising blurb:
“Why should you care about film and video piracy if you can get a DVD cheaper than the retail price? Film piracy is theft. Black market DVDs are not just terrible quality but deprive the filmmakers of millions in income each year. And unauthorised downloading and file sharing of films is illegal. Last year the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) confiscated almost 3 million pirate DVDs. Why should you care? Come and talk with the industry experts about film piracy can and see a popular feature film which looks so much better on the big screen than on any pirate DVD or download!”
I have some comments about the many mistakes and faulty assumptions in this paragraph, but I really don’t like swearing in public.
