Rip! An open source film about intellectual property

Posted by Martin Poulter on 27 August 2010

Rip! is a documentary about the clash between youth culture and corporate culture, using the mashup artist Girltalk as an example of how a lot of modern creativity is strictly illegal in a political environment that favours large corporations. It also touches on health issues: how the patenting of genes is inhibiting biological research. Rip! itself is an open source film, meaning that you are entitled to take the footage and make your own edit.

It’s a long film – just the trailer is included below – but set aside some time and you’ll be rewarded.
