Computer technology has enabled new musical forms such as sampling and mashups, but these innovations have also introduced sticky legal dilemmas in the area of copyright infringement. This Danish documentary examines the conflict between protecting intellectual property rights and preserving the creativity of artists who sample others' work -- including musicians Girl Talk and Danger Mouse, both of whom are interviewed here along with copyright experts such as free-culture activist Lawrence Lessig. The film also delves into related topics such as peer-to-peer file-sharing and the creation of new business models in the digital age.
