Subject: Re: [Computers_and_society_announcements] Movie Night at NYU:
Copyright Criminals, Friday, 7:00pm
Time: Friday, March 5th 7:00
Place: room 109, Courant Institute (Warren Weaver Hall)
Public Welcome -- Admission Free
Join producer Kembrew McLeod and legendary remixer Steve Steinski
Stein, the inspiration for many recent artists including Girl
Talk, for a Q&A session after the screening.
We are thankful that Kembrew (yes, the same prankster professor
who trademarked "Freedom Of Expression" and went after AT&T for
using the term in an ad) is giving us the opportunity to screen
this film so shortly after its successful run at the Film Forum.
Public Welcome Admission Free
Producers Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod craft a compelling
and insightful documentary illuminating both sides of a hotly
debated issue: Should the original artists get paid when someone
samples their work? Are current copyright laws out of step with
our mashed up, high tech culture? --USAToday
"Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeods exceptionally smart and
energetic documentary lays out the complexities of sampling,
artistic and political, legal and philosophical. Comprised of
split screens, overlapping and overlaid sounds, an assemblage of
images and noise, the movie effectively stages its argument even
as it makes it." --PopMatters.com
