Walking on Eggshells is a nicely-done 24-minute documentary about appropriation, creative influence, re-use and intellectual property in the remix age.
It is a conversation among various musicians, visual artists, writers and lawyers, all sharing their views on why and how we use and create culture, and how intellectual property law, originally designed to provide people with incentives to create, sometimes hinders creative production far more than it enhances it.
Lots of food for thought. Check it out and see parts 2 & 3 below.
