This is sort of a sampling question. If you use a keyboard version of an old song (that previously was made with instruments) do you need permission from the original owner? And how about if you use some of their original words for the hook, but not all of them? For example, if you hear the song, you will immediately recognize the hook from the older one, but its about something completely different. I've looked at the pto site, which doesn't really give me a clear answer, and I can't find any cases that clearly draw the line on sampling. Thanks!
