*For years now, some of the old-heads have been very critical of Hip-Hop and its sampling nature. A new documentary entitled “Copyright Criminals” will explore the clash between sampling and copyright law. The film will air on PBS Nov. 29.
“Copyright Criminals” includes provocative interviews from some headlining musicians and exerts from Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Hank Shocklee, De La Soul and many, many more.
Also, expect to partake on the colorful commentary by George Clinton, producer Steve Albini, and James Brown’s drummer Clyde Subblefield.
