    Great screening of the movie at the U of O
    SFUO event happened tonight, the screening of the movie RIP! A Remix Manifesto, 100% seats filled, 100% satisfied crowd, everybody loved it. We learned a lot from this interesting, entertaining, shocking, hilarious documentary about copyright issues.

    Interesting discussion and Q&A followed, thank you Michael Geist (uOttawa) and Peter Biesterfeld (Algonquin) for participating, thanks NFB and Brett Gaylor for creating this remixed piece of art, thanks to all the people who attended the screening.

    Hoping to have another opportunity to discuss these issues again,
