Video.PBS.Org: Austin City Limits & Copyright Criminals

In case you missed it, Austin City Limits recently featured artists K'naan and Mos Def, available here on PBS.org.

COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law and money. The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul and others.
The website has a sampling timeline and a few other interesting looking "documents" and videos on the history and legalities of sampling.
Check for local listings here.
