Mix and Mash: CC Online Video Remixing Competition

Creative Commons UK today launched a competition for recombinant video online. The theme is “Britannia Rules, Britannia Sucks” and submissions should be three minutes or less in duration. The site contains extensive links to resources for recyclable materials available under CC or in the public domain, whilst yours truly wrote some guidelines on using copyrighted works under the fair dealing clause. Winners will receive high-end camera, be featured on the frontpage of Google Video and have their films screened at the National film Theatre in London.

I’m curious to see what kind of stuff will turn up, particularly because examining the fair dealing cases again brought home once again the absurdity of the law.
