Everything Is a Remix: Part 4

Everything Is a Remix¬†is a sweeping, multipart documentary series about the importance of remixing — copying, transforming, and combining ideas — in culture and technology. The fourth and final segment,¬†System Failure,¬†examines the history and incentives that shaped current intellectual property laws, making the argument that they no longer serve their original purpose — copyright and patent laws block, rather than promote, innovation. The series is directed by Kirby Ferguson, who talks about the project in an interview with the Atlantic Video channel here.
