This is part two of Remixing Culture, a short documentary exploring the relationship between digital technology and remix music.

In Creativity Battles, can understand how remixes are made outside of the professional recording industry. Similarly to how quotation is deeply entrenched in society, quoting old forms of culture into a modern setting is seen as a new kind of literacy. With the development of open source software and the huge accessibility of music on the Internet, the ability to create media content is a possibility to nearly everybody who has a computer. Because of this floodgate of available music, questions of intellectual property are raised, because if culture is continually recycled by younger generations who reinterpret it, the copyright authorship becomes a difficult barrier to overcome. In this episode, we will see all the challenges posed by copyright, intellectual property and the issues of artistic integrity.

Starring: Grahm Zilla, Joe Kraft, Lana Gay, Troy McLelan, John Oswald
