Patent trolls are the worst. Oh wait, no, out-of-control copyright crusaders, they're the worst. In fact, the whole intellectual property system needs a total overhaul. But why? How did it come to this? Kirby Ferguson's sublime Everything Is a Remix series comes to a conclusion with this really smart explanation of how the spirit of IP laws has been totally perverted by modern corporate culture.


It's excellent as always, and you can lend a hand to Ferguson's next project, This Is Not a Conspiracy Theory, over on Kickstarter. [Kirby Ferguson]

The official Vimeo page for the video was down for a little while, but it seems to be all fine now.
