The Truth About Unpaid Internships?

I read this article this morning via The Guardian on unpaid internships. I can’t think of another recent topic–other than copyright infringement–that is more controversial among artists. What’s somewhat surprising is that the pro-unpaid internship position comes from the BBC, although I guess this should not be too surprising given the fact that they are a large media corporation which probably relies heavily on internships (paid or unpaid I don’t know).

Regardless, it’s also worth a read given how the BBC tried to put words in the interviewee’s mouth.
