Movie Info

The motto of this fast-paced, often hilarious American documentary that examines the changing attitudes towards multi-media plagiarism is "Copyright Infringement Is Your Best Entertainment Value." To make his point, filmmaker Craig Baldwin presents a collage of interviews, illegally "borrowed" samplings, and legal cases, providing examples of each that range from a record company's lawsuit against an independent rock band's satirical samplings to cellular phone scanners, to "billboard bandits." Baldwin also points out historical examples of artist's stealing ideas from each other.

Audience Reviews for Sonic Outlaws

Not much you wouldn't know if you followed any of these stories to begin with. No real new info comes out about the Negativland situation that hasn't been told before, but the way the film is put together if very fun to watch.
