Today, hulu.com posted a documentary called "RiP! A Remix Manifesto" about the ethics of ripping tracks for the purpose of remixing and re-creating them, as well as file sharing. Being that this is a topic close to our hearts (and rapidly thinning wallets), the future of how music is copyrighted is at stake. Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis is interviewed about "challenging the thresholds of fair use." Nice.
The film's official description:
Filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers.

One note about the fact that this feature film is only available to be streamed, and for a limited time: Legal serendipity?
