Also, opening at Harkins Valley Art this weekend is the award winning documentary “Terms and Conditions May Apply”. If you’re one of those people who usually click “I Agree” without reading the fine print when you sign up for anything online, you need to check out this film.
Featuring interviews from such people such as musician/ digital music rights activist Moby, author/ inventor Raymond Kurzweil and even an unauthorized interview from Mr. Facebook himself, Mark Zuckerberg, when you agree to the terms and agreements of any so called “free service”, what exactly are you agreeing to and what are these companies and the government doing with the information you so freely provide.
You may once or twice have heard “there is no such thing as a free lunch” as it’s impossible to get something for nothing; there's some price to pay. Director Cullen Hoback delivers a frightening yet compelling look into the terms and agreements of what millions of people agree to daily when signing up for anything online. Yet if they took a closer look, they may not be so willing to give up their data so willingly. The technology may be fun, cool and improve the quality of life in some way but what are the true costs to you? Check out “Terms and Conditions May Apply” when it opens at Harkins Valley Art starting Friday July 26, 2013.
