Geist gives kudos to NFB for free accessibility

Prof. Michael Geist, guru of intellectual copyright, praises NFB (the National Film Board) for putting its catalogue online, for free in a number of different platforms. He points out, philosophically, that this puts their content directly into the hands of the people who pay for it: Canadian taxpayers. I note with keen interest that he questions why that other taxpayer-subsidized media corporation doesn’t do the same; in fact it charges as much as $250 for some of its content.
