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.
