Wednesday Intermezzo: Girl Talks to Congress

Mr. Girl Talk Goes to Washington: Gregg Gillis sat down for a lunch meeting with Congressman Mike Doyle to discuss the copyright issues that have made it difficult for Girl Talk to sell records. Doyle, who represents Gillis’ hometown of Pittsburgh, is trying to figure out a way for mash-up artists to practice their art without getting sued. While Gillis and Doyle face an uphill battle against the fat wallets of the major labels, it’s good to see a politician trying to actually understand all sides of an issue. So what do you think? Should Girl Talk be allowed to use other artists’ copyrighted material outside the live setting, for profit?
