    RiP: A Remix Manifesto: "Let web activist Brett Gaylor and musician Greg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk, serve as your digital tour guides on a probing investigation into how culture builds upon culture in the information age."

    Copyright Criminals "examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law and money. Computers, mobile phones and other interactive technologies are changing our relationships with media, blurring the line between producer and consumer and radically changing what it means to be creative.
