Documentary.
Originally released as a motion picture in 2009.
Special features: Additonal scenes; mashup favorites.
Interviewer: Brett Gaylor ; guests: Girl Talk, Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow, Gilberto Gil, Marybeth Peters.
Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'
DVD, region 0, widescreen (1.77:1); Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, NTSC.
