Good Copy Bad Copy

22 05 2008

I recently spoke to a friend in the music industry: he had given up. His friend’s kids in fourth grade looked at him like a lunatic when he asked what they thought of record stores. They had never been to one. A 20-something relative of mine watches and listens to all media on his laptop in his parents home. He doesn’t own a single record. What’s happening with digital information?


The Danish documentary GOOD COPY BAD COPY takes a global view on digital reproduction and remixing. It traces copyright and digital reproduction in the US, Russia, Brazil, and Nigeria, and shows the variety of ways that people and societies handle infinite replication without quality loss. How does a county without copyright handle movie making? How do low cost producers and DJs in Brazil make money? Recommended viewing.
