Case Study 3: Keir Smith
Oh So Criminal is a piece of work created in response to the Australian governments "Fair Use and Other Copyright Exceptions: An examination of fair use, fair dealing and other exceptions in the Digital Age" Issues Paper, provided in May 2005. Do I believe this work is illegal? Yes of course I do especially the use of audio within it, with every sample very recognizable I don't think the original artists would really appreciate this that much. Should it be legal? Yes, if Smith takes the time and patience to get permission from every single artist, musician and company that has been used in this work.
