Copyright Criminals: film screening at UO Portland

In the middle of a busy day, I noticed iPhoto was open and thought I’d better seize the opportunity to post some pictures from our screening on April 15.

We had filmmaker and media studies scholar Kembrew McLeod here for a sneak preview of his documentary “Copyright Criminals,” about sampling in the music industry.  Thanks to our fantastic program planner Matthew Stadler, we also got Portland designer and ex-Gang of Four bassist Dave Allen to do a Q&A with Kembrew after the film.

We had a great crowd of students, musicians, artists, and even some entertainment lawyers.  Very lively discussion, and at the end of the night we had to boot people out.  Thanks to Reedie Rachel Bridgewater for bringing information about CopyNight here in Portland, and to KBOO’s Digital Divide for airing the Q&A on the radio.
