Moore: pirate my film, no problem - [Sunday Herald]

Valenti said:"Nobody can allow their rights to be stolen because, if you can' retrieve your investment, you're out of the movie business,
I don't think there's really a single actor or director in the world who does not believe that if you don't combat piracy, it will devour you in the future.'

No really, there are some. I think the future is devouring in any case and the film business is changing. How quickly remains to be seen but it is good to see established film-makers sanctioning sampling as well as us newbies. Piracy and non-commercial use have to be separated.
