Can You Own A Sound? (Copyright)
This provocative question is raised in a new resource from Community Classroom: Four lesson plans and film modules for Copyright Criminals, a dynamic documentary from Independent Lens that explores the origins of sampling culture in hip-hop music, copyright, creativity, and technological change.
This curriculum is an invaluable tool for teachers or media organizations seeking to promote media literacy and ethical media production practices among youth.
These resources are FREE to educators and youth-serving organizations and available at: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/copyright-criminals/classroom.html.
