Melania Trump’s keynote speech from last night’s Republican National Convention has been generating headlines all day long amid accusations that she plagiarized a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention. In a way, this puts remix front and center in the news: most of these stories include textual, audio or video comparisons of the speeches.
