"Brilliant Documentary: Good Copy Bad Copy"

I just stumbled onto this brilliant documentary called "Good Copy Bad Copy" this afternoon. While I try my best to stay informed of such types of things, this one simply slipped by me.

I can't recommend this documentary enough. Truly fascinating... Here's what Wikipedia had to say about it:

"Good Copy Bad Copy" is a documentary about copyright and culture in the context of Internet, directed by Andreas Johnsen, Ralf Christensen, and Henrik Moltke. It features interviews with many people with various perspectives on copyright, including copyright lawyers, music producers and controversial music artists such as Girl Talk and Danger Mouse. The interviews with artists reveal an emerging understanding of digital works and the obstacle to their authoring copyright presents.

Originally created for the Danish National Broadcasting Television network, the film was eventually released for free on the internet. It first appeared on The Pirate Bay and then it was officially released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license on the video sharing site.
