Law-Related Movies, Redux

It was just over 2 years ago I was boasting here on SLAW about attending the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Alas, I will not be attending TIFF 2009 this month but note there are a few law-related movies this year that sound interesting:

Presumed Guilty (about injustices in the Mexican prison system)

Google Baby (about issues surrounding surrogate pregnancies)

Cleanflix (about movie copyright and censorship involving attempts by Mormons to edit racy Hollywood movies)

Copyright Criminals: This is a Sampling Sport (about copyright issues involving music sampling [good Wikipedia article here on the legal issues involving sampling]). This one appears to have a free showing at 7 pm at the Yonge Dundas Square on Saturday, September 19th.
