this is the nature of all! surely you understand the difference between
inspiration and blatant theft?
the line may be blurry, but to pretend there is no line at all...

well... genres and media* are* disgusting.
but yes, students should be encouraged to experiment and take direction
from/with materials provided/found in their studies.
i view this repurposing of other's work as a way to practice, not as a way
to make a living.

perhaps suppress your ability to make money from said creation.


i've made several videos and albums created entirely from sampled material.
haven't sold a lick. haven't heard from any lawyers or government.
at this point it seems the creation is not what is illegal.
it's what you do with that creation.


respecting your adamance,
brian
