I’ve written before (here and here ) about Duke University’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain and their Arts Project Moving Image Contest, where entrants were asked to “create short films demonstrating some of the tensions between art and intellectual property law, and the intellectual property issues artists face, focusing on either music or documentary film.”

Jennifer Jenkins from the Center wrote while I was on vacation to tell me that the finalists have been announced and are available on the web here. They can be viewed online and you can pick your favorite entry too.

The finalists include films on topics like:

A documentarian trying to cover army recruiters in the North Carolina Piedmont…

A Polish animator’s science fiction vision of music’s apocalyptic future…

A college student’s efforts to make a Public Service Announcement about the Civil Rights movement..

A dissection of the law behind “Super Size Me”…



I haven’t had a chance to view these yet, but I’m really looking forward to checking them out.
