RiP: A Remix Manifesto

Todays movie choice... "RIP : A remix manifesto"
I found this interesting, and the debate about what is fair, what is right, what is wrong could go on and on.
My biggest issue is the corporate world who know nothing about the art.  I for one still buy music, because I really do not have many ways to support my favorite artist other then this way. Or if and when I can go to a concert or buy the Tshirt I will.
I will not go out and buy say PUBLIC ENEMYS "Yo... bum the show" album from the 80s. I have owned that album once on vinyl, twice on cassette, and twice on CD. I love that album, but I refuse to pay for it again and again.
That is just one topic. I see the progression over the intellectual property,  I want to see artist make a living, not some douche in a suit make millions.
Instead of progessing with the times and taking steps into new directions as did Radiohead, the big corporate world is at a stand still and wants to go after everyone with legal shit.

Immerse yourself in the energetic, innovative and potentially illegal world of mash-up media with RiP: A Remix Manifesto. Let web activist Brett Gaylor and musician Greg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk, serve as your digital tour guides on a probing investigation into how culture builds upon culture in the information age.
Biomedical engineer turned live-performance sensation Girl Talk, has received immense commercial and critical success for his mind-blowing sample-based music. Utilizing technical expertise and a ferocious creative streak, Girl Talk repositions popular music to create a wild and edgy dialogue between artists from all genres and eras. But are his practices legal? Do his methods of frenetic appropriation embrace collaboration in its purest sense? Or are they infractions of creative integrity and violations of copyright?
