Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis On Copyright, Curation and Making Mashups Rhyme

"When you listen to the recorded version of Girl Talk's music, it's hard not to get involved with the 'Name That Tune' game of it. ...

You might think that someone who uses other people's music so freely would disdain any notion of copyright, but Gillis, in fact, has a very balanced and contemporary viewpoint. 'I basically believe in that idea [of Fair Use], that if you create something out of pre-existing media, that's transformative, that's not negatively impacting the potential sales of the artist you're sampling, if it's not hurting them in some way, then you should be allowed to make your art and put it out there. I think, even in the years of doing this, the conversation has shifted a good bit.' Gillis has found himself a mashup artist in a mashup culture, and he no longer has to explain what he's doing or defend it. It is telling that no artist that has been sampled by Girl Talk has ever complained."

(Anthony Wing Kosner, 7 October 2012, Forbes)

Remix: Lawrence Lessig on IP in the Digital Economy

"The prolific and controversial web culture of piracy, particularly file sharing, has taken the world by storm, and for more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war in the name of the 20th Century’s model of copyright law.

The content industry has convinced the world that extremism in copyright regulation is good for business and economic growth. But that's false. Join Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig as he discusses the potential creative accomplishments that our society could achieve, if only we viewed copyright and intellectual property (IP) laws differently."

Lessig, L. (2008). "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy", Bloomsbury Academic.
