3 2 copyright and ownership of ideas

Watch: Rip! A Remix Manifesto (Links to an external site.) (86 minutes)

Fill out this study guide: Study Questions for RIP remix .docx

Most students enjoy this documentary (especially those who are fans of Girl Talk). It definitely has an editorial point-of-view (the documentarian is a self-professed “fan”), but it still provides a lot of great and reliable information about the state of copyright and fair use in the US. Grab a friend and watch it with them. I recommend setting the video quality at 720p, and watching full screen.

Just answer the questions on the study guide and either post it as an attachment in the discussion forum or bring it to class on Thursday to get homework credit.
