“© kiwiright” is a 12 minute documentary about how copyright laws have been contorted to beneﬁt the ﬁnancial needs of corporate rights holders and no longer beneﬁts the public nor the artists who create the work itself. Employing a fair-use argument, “© kiwiright” intercuts interviews with New Zealand lawmakers and technologists with Disney clips deﬁning and commenting on copyright law.
The filmmaker calls “© kiwiright” a "proof-of-concept" ﬁlm remixing footage from other ﬁlms released under Creative Commons licenses to build an argument against “guilt upon accusation” laws and to promote freedom of speech and expression.
