Product Description:

This film takes a close look at foreign people and they jobs they undertake using computers as their main source of income. The companies that outsource these people pay much less than you would expect for the amount of work that is done. The film starts in Serbia, learning of how employees that are photographers for the company Fotolia, take thousands of pictures to be used for stock photographs online. Of these photos, only a handful are accepted. The film then shifts to France, where photographers and models alike are complaining that the company does not make good on protection for its employees. Fotolia is interviewed at this time to see what their protective acts are, and what copyright plans are in place for photographs taken by foreign employees. Afterwards, a look at Amazon's Mechanical Turk program is investigated to see if it is making people victims of globalization.
