What should you do when your fans start 'stealing' your work? Is there anything you can do? Is embedding the video a viable answer? Do you need to be the sole point of distribution? Where is the line between piracy and promotion? Can artists make money in a world where everyone wants content for free? Is it possible to create an audience using un-traditional and unauthorized reproduction? Are the so-called pirates in fact the innovators for giving the audience what they want, how they want it, and where they want it? How does getting your video to the living room impact the issue? This panel will delve into the real world issues surrounding distribution technology, video piracy, file sharing, embedding and how all these issues influence the filmmaker.
