Cory Doctorow
"Outspoken novelist, commentator and new-tech guru CORY DOCTOROW debates the future for filmmakers and media artists in this special event hosted by Popcorn Taxi and the Australian Film Commission." - P o p c o r n T a x i event flyer

Sean Fitzgerald, Diana Khabbaz and Stephan Ridgway attended the event and we recorded it using a portable mp3 player and an external mic. We missed the first 5 min of the presentation as we were initially told by the organisers that no recordings or photos were permitted, however once Cory started he announced that the audience was free to make & disseminate digital recordings. In many ways this was a seminal moment and epitomised the difference between the “all rights reserved” and “Creative Commons” models of copyright he discussed in his presentation.
