Join us on Tuesday, October 20, from 4:00-6:00 pm for a virtual screening and discussion of RiP! A Remix Manifesto as part of Open Access Week.
Brett Gaylor’s 2008 open source documentary film RiP! A Remix Manifesto explores how current copyright laws limit freedom of expression and the ability to build off past works. The film covers remix artist Girl Talk and the music industry’s crack down on file sharing, how Disney created an empire based on remixing free and open IP only to later advocate for locking up IP indefinitely, and more.
Scholarly Communications Librarian, Sarah Wipperman, will provide updates from the past decade during the screening and lead a post-screening discussion on how these issues affect academia and the need for Open Access today.
Please note that this film deals with mature subject matter.
This event is sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library.
