EARLY WORD: Calling All Copyright Criminals

Next Tuesday, October 20, head on down to The Rotunda at 40th and Walnut for a free screening of the documentary COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS. Presented by ITVS’s Community Cinema program, COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law, and money. The film includes interviews with many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground, and the world’s most funky drummer Clyde Stubblefield — while also featuring emerging hip-hop artists from record labels Definitive Jux, Rhymesayers, Ninja Tune, and more.
