Everett Hallford, a personal friend, and an author and screenwriter, interviewed by James Martinez on Cash Flow—the blockbuster copyright lawsuit that details Hollywoood’s corruption in the wholesale stealing of creative works. Remember SOPA? Recall how THEY want to throttle the public’s access to content on the internet? Remember how they SUED moms and little kids for “piracy”…and how they want to shut down The Pirate Bay…rather than innovate and provide novel NEW ways to distribute true creativity, the Hollywood cabal continues to pummel the “everyman”. Remember that when you hear this story. This is the game: high roller writers and producers sign global marketing deals on the backs of screenwriters who are lured into sharing their work—even their lives!
Exclusive Interview by Screenwriter Everett Hallford tells his story.

The Internet, the emerging online community, have given the world unprecedented access to information via light speed online. Today are we confirming McLuhan’s hypothesis? Unfortunately, the information environment has launched a civil war within copyright law. Congress has periodically, but consistently modified copyright laws to respond to the introduction of new technologies affecting copyright. Although Congress passed the Copyright Act of 1976 to cope with emerging technology, no one anticipated the explosion of digital technology which has marked the digital age.
