IPSO (Intellectual Property Student Organization) invites you to a
showing of the documentary “Copyright Criminals”. The film examines the
creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related
debates over artistic expression, copyright law and money.

The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public
Enemy, De La Soul and Digital Underground, as well as emerging artists
such as audiovisual remixers Eclectic Method. It also provides
first-person interviews with artists who have been sampled, such as
Clyde Stubblefield — James Brown’s drummer and the world’s most sampled
musician — and commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk
legend George Clinton.
