Copyright Criminals

When: Sun., Nov. 1, 7 p.m. 2009

Whether you consider it tribute or theft, homage or heresy, the sampling phenomenon is ingrained in our culture, from resurrected actors in TV ads to the use of Victorian literary passages in William Gibson and Bruce Sterling's steampunk novel, The Difference Engine. But the most prolific example of sampling culture is, of course, in the record industry, which remains sharply divided over the legitimacy of recontextualized music. And that's the subject of Copyright Criminals, a documentary featuring artists like Chuck D and Clyde Stubblefield, which you can catch for free at 7 this evening in HSB Auditorium at CSU-Pueblo (2200 Bonforte Blvd, Pueblo, colostate-pueblo.edu/studentactivities). Or you could just save yourself the trouble and grab it off BitTorrent. — Bill Forman
