Additional Details


Originally released as a motion picture in 2009.

Special features: Additonal scenes; mashup favorites.

Interviewer: Brett Gaylor ; guests: Girl Talk, Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow, Gilberto Gil, Marybeth Peters.

Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'

DVD, region 0, widescreen (1.77:1); Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, NTSC.

Thought Provoking

This is an interesting documentary about intellectual property and copywrite law. It asks many great questions, but ignores others. It is still worth your time as it may open your mind to what copywrite is all about. It's also a great introduction to mash-ups!
