The Auditorium will show the documentary, "Urospredere", today. Urospredere is a Norwegian documentary focusing on the illegal files haring in Norway.
The background for the project is the evolving interest for illegal file sharing in Norway, having much attention in the media lately. Lawyers have announced that a growing number of file sharers are to be caught.
Internet pirates themselves on the other hand, haven't screamed as loud. The music and movie industry cries over dropping sales, and puts blame on the piracy.
- We wish that both parts, file sharers and copyright owners, shall have their voice heard. For a long time there has been a hopeless battle between these groups, and no-one shows any will to understand the other, the project leader Simon Valvik says.
The documentary will have focus on how file sharing can be made legal, what changes of law will have to happen, and how it will work altogether.
- We hope people will develop their point of view. Hopefully they learn something new they can use in upcoming debates and discussions.
The movie will be previewed at Cinemateket in Oslo the 27th of March, and have its launch at The Gathering 10th of April. The show will be free for all participants of The Gathering.
