* Digital Mix: A Special BayFF Celebrating Illegal Art

On July 25, the Electronic Frontier Foundation will host a night of music,
art, and conversation to celebrate digital culture.  Hosted at the Black
Box in downtown Oakland, this special BayFF will bring up-and-coming
artists of electronica, digital film, and illegal art together with leaders
from the cyber-rights movement.  Lawsuits and legislation have become the
weapons of choice for dealing with file-sharing and cultural recycling
("sampling"); come out and discover what all the hype is about. Between
laptop music, hip hop, and industrial performances, you will hear from
people who are fighting to protect new forms of expression and cultural
distribution from the attacks of the entertainment industry.  This is an
all-ages event.
