Librarian of Alexandria


I have been a working film director (REPO MAN, WALKER, etc) for twenty-odd years, and copyright law has never worked in my favour - only in the favour of massive corporations such as Universal / Vivendi, which seize even the "so-called inalienable rights of authors." Patent and copyright laws are a fraud perpetrated by corporations and governments against the actual producers of creative work. The independent filmmaker's rule of thumb is always, if Jack Valenti's in favour of it, I'm against it.
