Rip: A Remix Manifesto

If you're not heading to the co-op tonight to work on your bike or help someone else work on theirs I would like to invite you to see this film:


It's a documentary about copyright laws and infringement in this modern age. From the Brooks website:

Join the Brooks and Indie Memphis for a thought provoking film and
discussion on about copyright and remix culture. In this award-winning
documentary, web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of
copyright in the information age, which are shattering the wall between
users and producers. Also featured are mash-up musician Girl Talk; Creative
Commons founder Lawrence Lessig; Brazil’s Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil;
and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow. Are the issues about people power or
piracy? With RiP: A Remix Manifesto, Gaylor draws the lines of battle.
Which side of the ideas war are you on?

Free for members, $5 for non-members. Film starts at 7:30pm.

After the film Cameron Mann from Lord T. et Eloise will be leading a discussion.

After that we'll go ride bicycles.
