Copyright, Remix, Piracy, and Mashups

Hi there. I promised some materials for you to explore the idea of remixes and mashups, as well as links about copyright.

The best book I’ve seen on the subject of copyright and culture is Dr. Lawrence Lessig’s book Free Culture. It’s available FREE online here, as a PDF, as well as in audiobook format — also free, and legal — at the Internet Archive.

The lecture on which it’s based, and which we looked at (or will look at), is available here. Feel free to listen to the presentation more than once to review and deepen your understanding!

REMINDER: Listen to THIS LECTURE before our next class!

Here are some examples of remixes or “mashups”:
