Episode Summary

Copyright Criminals explores the world of audio remixing and the effects it has on the artists who depend on paying customers. The world of rap and hip-hop pioneered the technique of sampling, or creating audio montages of pre-existing sounds. Yet now hip-hop artists suffer the costs as cell phones and sophisticated video editing allow household users to "borrow" and remix sounds from their favorite artists.
