Movie Info

Filmmaker and Web activist Brett Gaylor explores copyright issues in the information age in this documentary focusing on the controversy surrounding Girl Talk, a popular mash-up artist who takes existing songs and transforms them into something fresh and original. By the mere act of creating his popular, sample-based songs, Girl Talk has incurred the wrath of copyright lawyers across the world. While some celebrate Girl Talk as a true pop-culture innovator, others condemn him as a 21st Century

A forceful, vibrant and immensely entertaining call to action.

A half-baked, poorly argued assault on the very notion of the sanctity of intellectual property posing as cutting-edge cinema.

A healthy punk attitude informs this documentary.

Gaylor shows us a glimpse of what a creatively free world can look like on the artistic scale, via artists like Girl Talk, and on a broader, societal scale via a look at Brazil, which has become a world leader in copyright progressivism.

issues are complex and the approaches to the solution are even more so. This film makes it hard to agree with either side.

There are better guides to the subject than Gaylor, who discusses everything from Napster to pharmaceutical patents without ever varying his dated we-the-people rhetoric.

There is a feeling, as the film goes on, that a more subtle, sophisticated debate is being sacrificed in the interests of a video clip.

As a piece of polemic, it's a well worked doco, using energy, narration and home video style footage to ram home the message. Pity the message is flawed

This documentary by Canadian-born filmmaker Brett Gaylor, who was born at the same time as the internet was conceived, fails to present a rational debate

A movie that manages to cut through the tangled history of intellectual property clearly and colourfully.
