Miniseries on Netflix: The Billion Dollar Code

Netflix has a new miniseries out, called The Billion Dollar Code. Its based on a true story that tells of how two German developers sued Google for patent infringement, arguing that Google Earth blatantly appropriated their own Terravision program from the 1990s. The show makes the case into an enthralling, if sobering courtroom drama, and also a kind of parable, using parallel timelines to contrast the utopian dreams of the ‘90s with the disillusionment surrounding ‘Big Tech’ today.
