Explore the origins of sampling culture in hip-hop music, copyright law, creativity, and technological change through curriculum and supporting film modules from the dynamic documentary Copyright Criminals. The film explores how hip-hop rose from the streets of New York to become a multibillion-dollar industry, and what happened when record company lawyers got involved and everything changed. Students will develop not only a deeper historical understanding of “remix” culture, but also contemplate where it is headed. Featured artists include Public Enemy, De La Soul, and George Clinton, as well as several prominent entertainment lawyers and media scholars.
