« An Ordinary Man | Main | Pollak Building Israel's Case for Harvard Course »

July 20, 2007



Um though I do understand the setiment of annoyance with the SABC over the fact that they are refusing to show the documentary,

but none the less, is this latest incident, not actually about what they claim. Copyright.

If they own the product, why should someone else get the chance to show it. If the mail and guardian want to show a documentary on Mbeki, should they not have to pay for it.

So now the guys who made the documentary, and having been paid for having made it, (they must have or SABC would not hold copyright), are they not also trying to create controversy and make some more money, out of a job they have already been paid to do.

I work in the creative idustry, and copyright is a very important thing. It is the ownership of something. Before the agreement, to allow limited screening, surely all screening of the documentary is just another theft?


JP, completely agree that copyright is important. As far as I understand the producers cancelled their contract with the SABC when the documentary was not screened. I also believe that they did not receive any money from the SABC for their work.
