Summary Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'
