Remix Part 2
Back in the before-time, in the long-long ago, before we had fancy digital technology in our laps (literally) which was capable of video editing (and in fact before we had digital technology which was capable of doing this) there was EBN - the Emergency Broadcast Network - probably the first digital video remix group using purpose-built hardware to produce politically charged (and frankly hilarious) videos. Not as relevant anymore - most of my classmates won't recognize Ross Perot for instance, but it's still got a beat that you can get into.
Lessig vs EBN
Permission! Lessig would agree that there is absolutely no way that EBN could actually get permission to make this remix - now or at the time. As with Hard Working George and the Treated for Mutilation remix of SilviaO's CC contribution, the remix has changed the message of the source material, changed its context, and produced a new piece of culture. Works like this exemplify Lessig's quote "This is not simply copying. Sounds are being used like paint on a palette. But all the paint has been scratched off of other paintings," which might be an interesting project all by itself.
