You don’t need my permission to copy, share, publish, archive, show, sell, broadcast, or remix _Sita Sings the Blues. Conventional wisdom urges me to demand payment for every use of the film, but then how would people without money get to see it? How widely would the film be disseminated if it were limited by permission and fees? Control offers a false sense of security. The only real security I have is trusting you, trusting culture, and trusting freedom. –from_ Sita Sings the Blues by Nina Paley.
