Eyes on the Prize Update
During my first week of blogging, I posted about Downhill Battle's efforts to encourage downloading and viewing of Eyes on the Prize--as a protest against their inability to clear copyrights for television rebroadcast and DVD distribution.
Later, I noted that Downhill Battle had caved under pressure from the film's copyright owners, and was no longer allowing downloads.
Apparently, the Ford Foundation and a private donor have donated enough money to clear all the rights. But, as Stay Free! points out, this doesn't really solve the very real problem facing scores of other documentarians.
