Le film est produit en France, il est sĂ©lectionnĂ© dans les festivals, il aura sans doute une vie Ă  l’Ă©tranger mais j’aimerais que les Russes le voient. AprĂšs le « CinĂ©ma du rĂ©el Â», je vais le diffuser en ligne, sur les plateforme de tĂ©lĂ©chargement russes, illĂ©gales le plus souvent. C’est un film politique, il n’a aucune chance d’ĂȘtre diffusĂ© Ă  la tĂ©lĂ©, ou dans les salles. Il faut le faire voyager autrement et, chez moi, les rĂ©seaux pirates, les systĂšmes d’Ă©change de fichiers sont bien organisĂ©s, c’est notre espace de libertĂ©. J’ai envie d’en profiter et de soutenir cette activitĂ©, mĂȘme si mes producteurs Ă©taient assez rĂ©ticents au dĂ©part. Je suis, moi-mĂȘme, un enfant d’internet et ça me plait de de laisser le film vivre sa vie et de voir s’il provoque des rĂ©actions.

Une nouvelle Ă©tudie commandĂ©e par le Centre Commun de Recherche de la Commission EuropĂ©enne, compilant les donnĂ©es comportementales de plus de 16 000 internautes europĂ©ens, a permis de dĂ©terminer que le piratage n’affecte en aucun cas le marchĂ© lĂ©gal et a mĂȘme un effet positif sur les ventes de musique. En gros, la musique que les gens tĂ©lĂ©chargent illĂ©galement n’aurait de toute maniĂšre pas Ă©tĂ© achetĂ©e par ces mĂȘmes personnes. Mieux, toute cette activitĂ© illĂ©gale stimule les ventes en ligne puisque les chercheurs ont dĂ©terminĂ© que lorsqu’il n’y a pas de sites qui proposent illĂ©galement de la musique, les clicks sur les sites lĂ©gaux diminuent de 2% environ.
“Are we saying that P2P file sharing promotes T-shirt sales, or show attendance? Of course not; that would be silly,” NPD’s Russ Crupnick writes. But is it really that silly? Or is it possible that some file-sharers become more engaged music fans because they have access to music they wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise? Could it be that these file-sharers then visit a concert of a band they wouldn’t have known if they didn’t pirate?
Nous sommes partis de l’idĂ©e qu’une politique culturelle de gauche doit permettre aux travailleurs de la culture de vivre de leur travail, au public de rencontrer les Ɠuvres et encourager la diversitĂ© culturelle. Or les politiques actuelles de protection des droits d’auteur et de la propriĂ©tĂ© intellectuelle n’atteignent pas ces objectifs. La loi Internet et crĂ©ation, dite Hadopi, qui criminalise les Ă©changes culturels non lucratifs, est inacceptable. Les artistes qui vivent de leur travail sont trĂšs peu nombreux. Si l’on souhaite que l’art se transforme en culture pour tous, des modĂšles alternatifs sont Ă  trouver.

The church of Kopimism considers the sharing of digital information to be a sacred act, and holds as its primary tenet: “‘Copy and Paste what thou wilt’ shall be the whole of the law.” In her slide deck, Pespisa proudly showed one of the Kopimists’ cherished symbols, a yin and yang with the copy-and-paste commands “Ctrl-C” and “Ctrl-V.”

"There isn’t really a god involved or anything. You’re not going to hell if you don’t share," Pespisa said, one of many remarks that drew waves of laughter from her fellow pirates. Kopimism has a founder—Isak Gerson—"but we don’t worship him."

La vision Ă©cologiste d’Internet est celle d’un rĂ©seau libre, neutre et accessible Ă  tous. Cette perspective ne date pas d’hier, et n’a pas attendu la candidature d’Eva Joly Ă  l’Ă©lection prĂ©sidentielle pour s’exprimer. DĂšs 2009, les Verts europĂ©ens - qui siĂšgent d’ailleurs aux cĂŽtĂ©s du Parti pirate suĂ©dois au Parlement europĂ©en - se dĂ©claraient en faveur d’une lĂ©galisation du partage de fichier Ă  but non commercial ; c’est lĂ  l’une de leurs revendications phares, parmi bien d’autres (moins de copyright, plus d’open source, pas de brevet logiciel, respect de la neutralitĂ© des rĂ©seaux
)
Most people agree that the internet has made us smarter — will it also make us freer? That depends on how we use it. Burnham believes that industries which produce content (Hollywood, music corporations, television) should be required to adapt, rather than “kill the medium.” He says that although we’re used to seeing artists portrayed as the victims in this debate, it’s really the industries that are suffering. “Artists are beginning to find really creative ways of financing projects, distributing projects, promoting projects and that’s great. The industry is a little bit slower to adapt.” And maybe they should.
“The theft-metaphor is problematic in the sense that a key element of stealing is that the one stolen from loses the object, which is not the case in file sharing since it is copied. There is no loss when something is copied, or the loss is radically different from losing something like your bike,” Larsson explains.
One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn’t want to conform to the harsh new rules being set.

Jonathan Rugman, a reporter for Channel 4 News in London, writes on Twitter from Westminster Magistrates’ court that the head of the legal team for Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, arrived wearing a skull and crossbones tie for the first hearing in the case. Mr. Rugman observes: “Internet pirates vs. Swedish prosecutor then!” He added that Mr. Assange is due to appear in the court in the next few minutes.

Homeland Security’s ability to shut down sites without a court order evidently comes from the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a Clinton-era law that allows Web sites to be closed on the basis of a copyright complaint. Critics have long assailed the DMCA for being too broad, as complainants don’t need to prove copyright infringement before a site can be taken down. News of the shutdowns has some observers wondering whether the US really needs COICA, the anti-counterfeiting bill that passed through a Senate committee with unanimous approval last week. That bill would allow the federal government to block access to Web sites that attorneys general deem to have infringed on copyright.

According to the anti-piracy outfit, the reported users were caught sharing a copy of the newly released Windows 7 Ultimate operating system. As evidence the self-proclaimed investigators submitted a screenshot of peers listed by uTorrent.

The owner of LinkoManija was not impressed by LANVA’s actions. “Anyone can copy a peer list, but it doesn’t prove that anyone downloaded the full file or actually uploaded anything,” Kestas told TorrentFreak. “It can’t be used as serious evidence,” he added.

LANVA disagrees and hopes that the police will track down the identities of the accused infringers. If this happens the users will face fines of up to several hundred dollars, plus additional damages Microsoft’s lawyers may call for.
