Copyright Criminals


Film Screening with Co-Producer Kembrew McLeod (in Person)

Thursday April 30, 6 – 8 p.m., Main Library 66

This is a film about music sampling, art, and copyright law. It tells a story about how media industries regulated hip hop and how hip hop artists like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground resisted them.

Kembrew McLeod is a filmmaker and Associate Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Iowa

Do You Tweet?

Our little blog is now over 100 posts old. While I think this is a useful tool for you, dear reader, who may not have time to search for arts news on your own and also want to keep up with Library news and tools, I’m wondering whether folks have time to read blogs any more. Is there a more effective way to share information with you?

I’ve been thinking Twitter might be another way to share these stories and news items with you. Do you Twitter? Would you follow a Music and Performing Arts Library Twitter stream? Or would you rather continue with the blog? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know what you think.

Thanks! Kirstin Dougan, User Services Coordinator, MPAL
