Everything is a Remix

Directed by: Kirby Ferguson

Creativity isn’t magic. Our system of law doesn’t acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren’t so tidy. They’re layered, they’re interwoven, they’re tangled. And when the system conflicts with the reality… the system starts to fail.

This web series is awesome. Kirby is also the guys behind the video “Protect IP Act Breaks the Internet” which explains the proposed PROTECT-IP bill.
