If you have 200 minutes or so to spare, I highly suggest you check out the documentary, RIP: A Remix Manifesto. Its a 2008 doc by Brett Gaylor that takes a look at the copyright controversy in today’s media. Greg Gillis aka Girl Talk is one of the main focuses of the film and gives some intelligent insights into his views on the situation. One of the most interesting subjects is a single mom, who was sued for her son’s alleged use of Kazaa to download music.
Aside from the cool Girl Talk footage, its really an interesting documentary and definitely worth a viewing. I watched it last fall and its one of the more engaging docs I’ve seen in awhile.
