    What is the U.S. Copyright Group? How are they suing so many people? What should you do if you're sued? If you're a movie fan, should you be worried? If you're the producer of an independent film, should you be suing your fans?

    We're going to find out.

    At 9:30am to 10:30am, Tuesday 15th March
