RIP: A Remix Manifesto

ORIGINAL TITLE:
RIP: A Remix Manifesto
Canada / 2009 / 80 min
DIRECTOR:
Brett Gaylor
The times, they are a-changing?

In RIP: A REMIX MANIFESTO filmmaker Brett Gaylor and musician Girl Talk takes us on a tour through the world of copyright, fair use, remixing and mash-ups. The result is a manifesto on what they believe is wrong with the today’s international copyright regime. Through mash-ups and interviews they seek to establish how today’s culture builds upon the past and how we should create a new form of copyright control for the 21th century. RIP is an interesting contribution to the ongoing copyright debate.
