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?

Why should I donate?
We think you should donate if you liked the film.
That said, here's a bit about the economy behind Good Copy Bad Copy. We sold the film to the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) who have been the first, and until now the only TV station, to air it. This money covered about one fourth of the total costs, so obviously we need to sell it to other TV broadcasters world wide to make ends meet. If you want to help us with this, please suggest your local broadcaster to get in touch with us.
Your donation would make us more likely to

B: consider a follow-up and
C: prove that sharing is not necessarily cheap or evil.
