I was in the audience at the pre-Oscar program honoring documentarians that was sponsored by the International Documentary Association when this announcement was made to the collection of docu-makers in attendance. The announcement got a standing ovation, something I think insurance folk never expected to get. This will surly open doors for more people with a vision to tell a story to actually get that story told.

I’ve been empowered by reading the Statement and applying the rules that were laid out so succinctly. This legal assistance will further advance independent filmmakers ability to assert these imperative rights on a larger scale.

This really is major news. From a documentary filmmaker who has dealt with fair-use issues, kudos to everyone involved with this much-needed project. Obviously, it just got a lot harder for corporations and individuals to intimidate doc filmmakers away from criticism and other fair use.
