The motto of this fast-paced, often hilarious American documentary that examines the changing attitudes towards multi-media plagiarism is Copyright Infringement Is Your Best Entertainment Value.
To make his point, filmmaker Craig Baldwin presents a collage of interviews, illegally borrowed samplings, and legal cases, providing examples of each that range from a record company's lawsuit against an independent rock band's satirical samplings to cellular phone scanners, to billboard bandits.
Baldwin also points out historical examples of artist's stealing ideas from each other.
