Ubuweb is hurting artists, say the lawyers and businesspeople who want to shut the file-sharing site down. "One complaint read 'Kenneth Anger is penniless and living in a shack, yet you are making his films available for free and taking money away from him?' To which we reply: if the current system of avant-garde film distribution was working so well, why would the great artist Kenneth Anger be living in a shack and not a mansion? Is this really a system to hold on to?" meanwhile, Tech BC is no more, and Ubuweb has resurfaced with a fantastic array of (presumably legal) content.
