Nina Paley's Copyright Song

Nina Sings "Copying Isn't Theft" from Reel 13 on Vimeo.

Here's Nina Paley creator of the celebrated — and copyright-permission-haunted — animated film Sita Sings the Blues, singing her new "Copyright Song," a delightful little ditty about the moral case for copying stuff.

Robin adds, "Nina Paley's new project, inspired by her experience with freeing Sita from copyright jail, will be a series of short films about copyright. The first part of the project is that she wrote a song that she's hoping will get covered by different musicians; she can then animate those musical tracks."
