Roaring about life since 2009

‘copyright criminals’ on PBS

Well I know what I’m doing January 19th.  Since I’ve been consumed by all things copyright lately, I’m definitely very curious about this documentary’s take on the subject of sampling.

This documentary traces the rise of hip-hop from the urban streets of New York to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry.

As artists find ever more inventive ways to insert old influences into new material, this documentary asks a critical question, on behalf of an entire creative community: Can you own a sound?

Copyright Criminals To Air Jan. 19 On PBS

An excellent question sir!  So mark your calendars now for Jan 19th before you kill so many brain cells over the holidays that you forget about it.  Seriously.  I’ve been there.

Have it good,

-Mike
