Intellectual Freedom Festival Airs 3:48 pm - 4:54 pm, Sunday November 30th "Intellectual Freedom Remix, feat. Tack-Fu, the Chaircrusher, Pirate Radio and Kembrew McLeod: What Producing, Sampling, Remixing and Broadcasting have to teach us about copyright and the freedom to create." Music, film, books and other media have become imminently shareable with the advent of internet broadband communications. Some artists see this as a threat to their rights under copyright law, while others view this as an opportunity to freely distribute and transform old media in order to create new works of art. The passing of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in 1996 is just one instance of new legislation designed by rights-holders to protect intellectual property in an age of shareable digital media. Meanwhile, a counter-movement of artists argues that strict copyright laws stifle intellectual freedom and creativity. Kembrew McLeod is a Professor of Communications at the University of Iowa and an activist for copyright reform and creative commons licensing. He has copyrighted the phrase "Freedom of Expression" as a statement about the chilling effects of current copyright laws in the U.S. Tack-Fu and the Chaircrusher are local hip-hop producers who live by their own set of rules for sampling other musicians' work to create new and innovative music. Pirate Radio broadcasts music, talk, poetry, radio drama (an original is currently in production), and even weekly bedtime stories from Iowa City. They work independently of the FCC, which is the federal department that determines who is eligible for broadcasting licenses. Program is cosponsored by LISSO - the student organization of the University of Iowa's School of Library and Information Science (SLIS).
