Copyright Criminals

2009 Rated NR 54m

In this incisive documentary, filmmakers Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod explore the creative, ethical and legal implications of sampling -- a technique by which hip-hop artists use snippets of other performers' compositions in their own tracks. Is sampling a fair use of other artists' work to create a brand new music form, or is it copyright infringement, plain and simple? Chuck D., George Clinton and other musical heavy hitters weigh in.
