Good Copy Bad Copy

Documentary film

Good Copy Bad Copy explores the state of limbo the world is in when it comes to copyright.

Western media conglomerates and rights owners desire one world order, while ‘pirates’ and cultural movements in the third world invent their own rules. Rules that even the West might have to play along with.

In a Pittsburgh living room, DJ and producer Girl Talk composes catchy pop hits on his laptop. In the span of 30 seconds he samples Elton John, Notorious B.I.G and Destiny’s Child into a new song. But, who owns the music? Who owns the artists? Piracy is booming all over the world - from Nigeria to Brazil, while Hollywood and the record industry fight to stem the tide.
