: I'm from Puerto Rico and there's this musical genre called "reggeaton". They have been using samples for a while. They are not derivate works. They are not shorter than 15 sec.They almost sound exactly like the original instrumental apart from a drum loop and a guy rapping like a jamaican "dancehall artist".
: What can I really do? Send recorded tapes to the artist's label? I'm not sure if I can do anything.
: Thank You
Dear Jay Cruz,
The tough part is to find someone that will even listen.
