The economic and social detriment or benefit of different conceptions of copyright and intellectual property is hotly debated. Pirate copies in the field of music, for example, reduce the income of musicians and companies from the sale of sound media yet also hold new possibilities for the exploitation of economies of attention. More significantly, they challenge the industry to revise unethical business practices, something that is long overdue. The effects of piracy and the open-content movement, as well as the underlying motivations, go far beyond a differential economy, rebellion and gratis entertainment, and invoke questions not only about the distribution of affluence, access and power, but also about the conditions for the emergence of new ideas. The film illuminates perspectives of various actors from both sides of the spectrum and thus enables a comprehensible overview of this complex issue. It also does not forget to describe the inevitably different perspective of people outside of the western industrial countries.
