Where did you watch this movie?

During a panel at the Global Voices Summit 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Eddie Avila, Director of Rising Voices narrated about the dilemma that a Colombian young man went through once after discovering a bunch of cassette tapes. The tapes contained recordings of his late father who was interviewed by an European researcher but was hidden somewhere. The young man got really excited the tapes surfaced after all these years. So, he thought it might be interesting to digitize the tapes and share them online, and he did that only to realize that he has made his own siblings upset. They did not approve the fact that the recordings have gone online. The question Avila leaves everyone with is “who owns the content [in the tape]?”. Is it the researcher who interviewed the late father and recorded those interviews in the first place, is the the father who is no more around, or the children, or the community whose songs and stories were recorded?
