Join us on Wednesday, March 10 at 8 p.m. ET for the next webinar in our PBS - Classroom 2.0 series. During this event, you will have the chance to hear from and interact with filmmaker Kembrew McLeod, whose film "Copyright Criminals" recently aired on PBS's Independent Lens, law professor Peter Jaszi, and media producers and educators Chris Runde and Joe Fatheree. The four will discuss the implications of copyright and Fair Use laws in the classroom and share best practices in student media production. We will also be joined by Annelise Wunderlich, National Community Engagement and Education Manager for ITVS, who will present film modules and lesson plans based on the film and developed by ITVS Community Classroom.
About the Film:
Computers, software and even cell phones have radically altered our relationship to mass culture and technology, providing consumers with the tools to become producers, or "remixers," of their own media. But long before everyday people began posting their video mash-ups on the Web, hiphop musicians perfected the art of audio montage through a sport they called "sampling." "Copyright Criminals," a documentary by Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod, examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the ongoing debates about artistic expression, copyright law and (of course) money.
