Good Copy, Bad Copy

And while we're on copyright and net neutrality, you absolutely have to watch "Good copy, bad copy" a stunning Danish documentary on remix culture and copyright, available as a free download. The film skips around the world, showing the changing attitudes toward art and culture in Nigeria, Sweden, Brazil, the UK, and the US, answering statements about incentives and creativity by the MPAA and IFPI by showing us real artists (like Danger Mouse and Girl Talk) making wonderful creations that, according to the gangsters in the entertainment industry, no one will make without copyright.

The movie has a very light touch, and a lot of humor and superb production values. It's a masterclass on the copyright wars crammed into 58 minutes of video -- a must-see.

Fuck the RIAA!
