Join filmmaker Brett Gaylor and mashup artist Girl Talk as they explore copyright and content creation in the digital age. In the process they dissect the media landscape of the 21st century and shatter the wall between users and producers. Creative Commons founder, Lawrence Lessig, Brazil's Minister of Culture, Gilberto Gil, and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow also come along for the ride.

So this would have to be my favourite flick of them all. I love the use of the word mash-up. It applies to so many aspects of life in general--interracial relationships, dance hybrids like Bollywood (bhungra & urban dance together), chicken and waffles. At any rate, dance is all about taking different worlds, combining them and enjoying the explosion from that partnership. I hope I get the opportunity to watch Girl Talk live one day. He creates stimulating sounds, perfect for a dancer or any artist's palette. He's got an irresistible drive and his passion gives him this attractive energy that other people want to be around. He knows how to rock a party! And as for copyright? I would have to say I'm copyleft...
