Piratkopiering

LifestylePosted by Jonas Mon, January 11, 2010 19:11:57

Du ville ikke stjålet en bil. Du ville ikke stjålet en veske. Og så videre. Den reklamen har alltid irritert meg. Piratkopiering er stjeling, påstår de, og overser glatt den ene enormt viktige forskjellen mellom piratkopiering og stjeling, nemlig at ingen mister noe når man piratkopierer. Du ville ikke stjålet en bil. Men du ville kanskje kopiert en?

Jada, “tap av salgsinntekter”, jeg vet. Dette er et rent teoretisk tap, en størrelse basert på hva en rekke mennesker potensielt kanskje kunne gjort. En venn av meg har som vane å laste ned enorme “Best of”-samlinger for forskjellige årstall, for deretter å laste ned “Best of”-plata til hver av artistene på dem. Det blir ganske mange plater. Skikkelig uflaks for plateselskapene, siden han uten muligheten til å laste ned dette ville gått rett til butikken og kjøpt hver og én av alle CDene! Jeg tviler ikke på at piratvirksomhet er et problem for mediebransjen, men å kalle det stjeling er ganske enkelt feil.

Og sier reklamen noensinne at stjelingen er moralsk gal? Nei. Det slås kun fast at det er “against the law”. Argumentet lyder altså “ikke gjør det, fordi jeg sier det.” Brrr. Pakk det hele inn i tvangshipt MTV-papir, og du får en reklame som kun inspirerer meg til å skru av DVD-spilleren, sette meg ved datamaskinen og laste ned filmen isteden. Så slipper jeg i det minste den helvetes antipiratreklamen.

Men hva oppnår man ved kun å klage? Som aspirerende filmskaper bestemte jeg meg for å lage et eget manus til en antipiratreklame. Med pirater.

Anti-Piracy Advertisement


An old-fashioned map shows an enormous sea, marked only “The Internet”.

Hero (Voice-Over): “ ’Twas a wild day on the seas of the Internet.”

We zoom in, and the map comes alive. There’s a large 1600’s-style port city, teeming with life.

Hero (V.O.): “In Art Town, the people were working as usual”

We see artists of different kinds, some writing books, some playing musical instruments, some drawing.

Hero (V.O.): “My father was recording his latest album.”

An old man plays the violin, filling a bottle with the music.

Hero (V.O.): “This was our livelihood, but times had been tough”

The bottle is corked and passed on. We see a young man, this is our HERO.

Hero (V.O.): “I decided to find out why our music hadn’t been selling so well of late”

Our hero follows the bottle to a marketplace, where a SCRUFFY-LOOKING MAN buys it. Our hero follows him to the port, where the man puts on an eye-patch.

Hero (V.O.): “By Kraken’s parrot! Pirates!”

The pirate boards his ship, our hero sneaks on board.

Hero (V.O.): “I should have known! Those scoundrels copy our art, acquiring their gold in the most rotten way possible: through advertisements.”

A banner covers the screen, it reads: “Lonely? Get scammed tonight!” The narrator cuts it in half with his sword. The boat is now in a new port, a dark and noisy place.

Hero (V.O.): “I followed the pirates to their bay. ‘Twas time they learned their lesson.”

They enter a large hall. People are tapping art into bottles from big barrels, manned by pirates. The walls are covered with advertisements. The pirate our hero has followed is just about to pour music from the bottle into a barrel.

Hero: *Snatches bottle* “No, you don’t!”

Pirate: “Arrr, how dare ye interfere with me piracy!?”

The pirates attack, trying to get the bottle back, and a wild fencing battle follows. Our hero dodges their blades, and in the end is standing victorious on a pile of knocked-out pirates, the bottle in his hand.

Hero: “People of the Internet!”

Everybody stops their tapping, listening attentively.

Hero: “I know you all like free stuff, but remember that this art you’re tapping is someone’s sweat and tears! Life as an artist is impossible if you get nothing back for your work. Support the art you like, so the artists can make more of it!”

The hero opens the bottle, and beautiful music plays. The crowd is moved.

Text: “Support your artists, get your art legally”


Jeg sendte manuset til Motion Picture Association of America, og lover å rapportere et eventuelt svar. Om verdens mest irriterende reklame en dag blir erstattet av fektende pirater, husk å takke Bloggosaurus.

Way to go! If they approve your script, I'll reconsider downloading that car. -A
