With recent pending legislation in the U.S. such as SOPA  and PIPA, it’s a good time to revisit this documentary we originally showed  in 2009. The film itself was created before these bills existed but it is a good primer on issues like media control and fair use within (and outside  of) the internet, and is relevant now more than ever.  About the film-
In RiP: A Remix Manifesto, Web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores  issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape  of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers.  The film’s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. But is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? Creative Commons founder, Lawrence  Lessig, Brazil’s Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and pop culture critic  Cory Doctorow (co-editor of Boing Boing) are also along for the ride.  Hope to see you there! http://www.moviesonabigscreen.com
