Geek Revenue by Professor Simon Lindgren, Umeå University

This video essay uses classical cultural theory as well as current internet research to address the relationship between the cultural industries and the increasingly active and tech-savvy audiences of the 21st century. Is there always a clear-cut division between capitalist media institutions on the one side and a pirating audience on the other? What space is there for remix culture and other potentially copyright infringing activities in the discourse of digital content monetization?
