Hi Holly - Two suggestions:

Copyright Criminals - a recent PBS Independent Lens broadcast on sampling
and how copyright has shaped the hiphop culture produced by Benjamin
Franzen and Kembrew McLeod. See
http://www.shoppbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=3975315 for purchase

An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube - actually available on
YouTube.com at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPAO-lZ4_hU
- Mike Wesch's speech to the Library of Congress from June 2008 on how his
classes study YouTube.

I've used both in the classroom--and they are excellent. Kind regards,

Does anyone have any suggestions for recent DVDs that could be used in
teaching internet studies or new media studies classes?  There are a few
that I use ("IRL," "Virtual Worlds: Inside Online Games," aka "Avatars
Online"... I think that's right) that are getting a bit dated, although
are still great.  I am coming up with a list of more recent ones for my
university's library to order.  Thanks in advance!
