Pirate Cinema Berlin

Pirate Cinema Berlin

Above all, the “War on Piracy” is a war against revolution: against the French Revolution that has generalized individual rights and against the Digital Revolution that has generalized the individual exchange of data. What cinema wants to generalize is the cancellation of these rights and the cancellation of these exchanges. That’s why we’re all criminals: not only those who circumvent the copy protection of a DVD or bring a camera to a cinema — in the U.S. today, both will face prison terms that dwarf the ones for theft and even exceed the ones for manslaughter — but everyone who insists on the basic banality that whatever is digitized has already been, and can always be, copied, and that whatever can be seen has already been, and can always be, reproduced.
