On the other hand, copyright laws aren't in place to hurt people or to
be a censor. My husband makes a living doing political science
research. He's getting his work published all the time in high end
journals. What if someone suddenly decided to rip off his work without
aknowledging him or gaining his permission? To whom do we turn for
recourse? The law. I have hundreds of wonderful documentaries in our
films collection here at USC, and many of them are just as important for
THEIR disciplines as Eyes is for AFrican American Studies/History.
China's Only Child is a remarkable and poignant documentary, and I'm
sorry it's out of print, but I'm not going to start broadcasting it out
of protest. Without law, there's anarchy.
I just hope this gets cleared up peacefully and soon.
