Is remixing the “I smoked but didn’t inhale” of the next generation?
Anyway, the comments in this post are very revealing. Admittedly, I am part of the generation that got slapped down by the RIAA, who overnight managed to outlaw sampling in a stunning action of greed and overreach (and I consider the Sonny Bono Millennial Copyright legislation to be the absolute work of the devil), and yet, at the same time I’m also one of the people who says Pay The Author really loud. I guess this question makes me very conflicted.
Anyone want to weigh-in? How can I object to HuffPo if I think that sampling Mommy Dearest with Noonan’s latest appearance on MTP is a valid use of creative license?
