Re: OT - Sample usage

...i read about this yesterday, and it's kind of funny.  my philosphy with sampling has always been "if the artist who played the sample origianally would recognize it, it's not cool".  the beauty of this ruling is that if the sample is truely unrecognizable, then how does the copyright holder know they are being "stolen from", even if they are listening to your record?  answer: you would have to tell them!

"A federal appeals court ruling that determined artists must pay for every sample they use, even those that are unrecognizable."
