Kinolab Film Festival
I do not steal movies, but I can not legally download them online. How relevant is this argument?
The development of social media and the availability of new technologies created an environment enabling sharing of content that is valuable for the development of our society. But at the same time questions about sharing audio-visual content without the knowledge of the author arose. Promotion of creative works via the Internet has never been easier, yet nothing is free.
The questions related to piracy and copyright will be targeted through documentary films and subsequent discussions with experts at the Kinolab Film Festival in Prague, with the subtitle How technology made us share.
Open to general public, specifically to internet users, the festival offers not only a platform for discussion, but will serve as a practical guide to online behaviour. The festival will offer a rich program within two days. Through thematic documentaries and feature films, panel discussion with experts and lectures it will offer an insight into the principles of online sharing.
The festival will address the most common ways of sharing material online, such as streaming, referencing, or downloading through practical examples, along with explaining the conditions under which authoring works can be used without the author's consent or how users can trace the work the author has agreed to with the use of the work.
