The Science and Technology Council of the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Scientists published their second report on the issues that face filmmakers in the digital age, “The Digital Dilemma 2″.
A good overview of the report can be found in a recent report by Variety:

Worse, indie and docu filmmakers, whose work is most vulnerable to this risk, seem oblivious to the danger.
