Abstract:
There has been much discussion about the legal issues surrounding remixing media but what about the ethics of appropriation? How do we navigate questions specifically relating to the power dynamics that arise when remixing someone else's media. Is there a meaningful difference between remixing corporate or government media and remixing works by individuals? This seminar will examine these moral and ethical implications.
