Everything is a Remix Ep. 4

The "Everything is a Remix" series by Kirby Ferguson is absolutely fantastic.  Over the course of its four episodes it details the evolution of ideas and stories, and how they are all interwoven into a complex tapestry that gives us the many archetypes, cliches, and signifiers that we have today in entertainment.  I have featured the past three episodes (click HERE) on this blog, and today I am sharing the final installment with you.  This episode centers on the current legal, economic, and social systems in place that prevent the copying and transforming of intellectual property into new, more highly evolved ideas and concepts.
