Golden Age of Piracy
Web documentary series
After 14 years in the DVD and video rental business, Derek de Vreugt is struggling to keep his business afloat. To save money he's moved into the shop and leased out his storefront to a bank, yet still he spends what little money he has building a library of every film worth watching. It's a strategy he describes as his "piracy insurance policy" – but is it simply too late?
What is it: A 5 x 5 minute documentary series exploring the issue of internet piracy set against the backdrop of one of the last remaining video stores in Melbourne.
Featuring: Derek De Vreugt; Cory Doctorow, Matthew Deaner, Kim Dot Com, Jack Valenti and Ticky Fullerton
