Copyright Criminals - A Documentary & Discussion on Sampling & Hip-Hop - Hip-hop and rap music mesmerized listeners when they hit the mainstream in the late 1980s. Their use of music samples, however, resulted in lawsuits that raised debates about the re-use and legal protections of creative works. This 50-minute documentary includes interviews with recording artists Chuck D., George Clinton and others who were at its epicenter, and also legal experts and record company executives who weigh in on this debate. This viewing will be followed by audience discussion. Recommended for students, staff, and faculty interested in hip-hop, sampling music, the creative process, and intellectual property.
