Added "Paywall: The Business of Scholarship" (2018), you can watch it here:

kino.social/paywall-the-busine

Feature-length documentary about the parasitic publishing companies that syphon off billions of dollars of public money by pointlessly charging scientists to read each other's research.

The film is brand new and released under Attribution 4.0 licence. You can find out more at paywallthemovie.com/

By the way, if anyone's having trouble playing this online, you can also download the film to watch offline by clicking on its title, which will take you to its archive.org page.

...and as it's a Creative Commons film, it's totally legal to distribute the downloaded film wherever you want.

@kinosocial
You think its possible to write a #kodi Plugin for your services? Would love to see those film on my kodi station.

@meldrian

Kino.social is just a curated embedding site, so I think you would have to ask archive.org and PeerTube, as that's where the videos are hosted.

(Also, I'm not a developer so I don't know how to do plugins anyway :/ )

@kinosocial It's great that a documentary has been made about this great injustice. Elsevier and Springer, shame on you. We demand open access!
