Remix Culture

Ethics Evolved: Copying in the Digital Age – A lecture by Aram Sinnreich

In this lecture, professor Aram Sinnreich presents his research on remix culture, on the challenges posed by of contemporary media mixing in forms such as mashups and memes. Collecting data from thousands of adult Internet users across a range of nations between 2006-2015, Professor Sinnreich examines our attitude towards these new “configurable” cultural practices. Because they are produced and circulated within digital, networked media, these new remixed cultural forms often present a challenge for conventional economic and legal models for retail, broadcasting, and copyright law.
