Alternate title:Resistance and repression in the age of intellectual property
Summary:Explores the issue of fair use in copyright law. Artists, authors, lawyers, and others discuss the implications of creation, creative use, intellectual ownership, and public domain when it comes in conflict with established copyright law. Through news clips, film excerpts, music, legal cases, satire, and a wide range of other examples and illustrations, the concerns regarding traditional copyright laws' infringing on freedom of expression are examined and critiqued.
