Microsoft UK Sponsers Short Film contest

It’s almost funny given Microsoft’s track record for similar computing “innovations”. The Thought Thief contest is looking for films under 45 seconds revolving around the idea of IP theft. I’d love to enter but it’s only for UK citizens.
Even more ironic is that the rules of entry say that the copyright of the film belongs to the entrant but the entry form says:

“I will formally licence, on terms acceptable to Microsoft, all intellectual property rights in my film and agree to waive all moral rights in relation to my film if requested to do so.”


The line regarding moral rights is particularly brilliant. In that evil sort of way.
