: : : it's more than common for bands to sample bites from previous artists music and incorporate it into their own. At what point is it copying? or more to the point, when does the sound become something new? is it dependant on a substansive argument?
: On the other hand, there are circumstances when only one bar is enough for the listener to recognize the source where the sample comes from. Thus, an "author" would benefit from someone else's work under the protection of law. Doesn't it seem inadmissable. (can't find my question mark)
Dear Mr Neto
Some time ago I discussed this matter with a lawyer that did more Copyright than I do. He somewhat suggested what you say. That means you could have a greater risk.
