Online movies, Taiwanese law, and the American movie industry

Author: JT Smith

Anonymous Reader writes, "Did you know that apparently the law in Taiwan says that for a movie to be protected by copyright law one has to apply for such protection within a month after the opening in the theaters? Did you know very few Hollywood features ever apply for such protection and thus have long fallen into the public domain as far as the island of Taipei is concerned? Enter Movie88, on online googolplex where you can watch recent hits like Shrek or Save the Last Dance for $1.00.
