Copyright Criminals

A perennial hot topic. “Copyright criminals examines the history and influence of musical sampling, provoking debates about copyright, compensation and in the age of intellectual property”. The film includes the thoughts of many of hip-hop’s iconic founding figures: Public Enemy, De La Soul and Digital Underground. It also provides first-person interviews with artists who have been sampled, such as Clyde Stubblefield — James Brown’s drummer and the world’s most sampled musician — and commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk legend George Clinton.
