"i for one think it is much more damaging the activity of universities in our
culture - than that of hollowood the lie that education is actually occurring -
let alone fully(talk about commodity production). this is profoundly more
unethical and not dissimular to the lie of the evening news"
You make an interesting point about the idea of "ownership" being shared by both
Hollywood and the more independently minded. But I think the issue here is not
the concept of "ownership" in general, but rather the question of intellectual
property rights as it relates to Hollywood's appropriation of material produced
outside the system.
But I'm unclear about how your generalizing claim that universities are damaging
our culture relates to these issues. What is your particular problem with the
university system? And how does this relate to intellectual property rights
regarding the work of experiemental filmmakers?
