That's a big leap to make. I compare it to graphic art like a collage
made up of newspaper clippings or a video of Doublwa or his poodle with
TV speeches edited and juxtaposed to say what they really mean they
start dribbling on TV. In those cases do you really care where the
original media came from? If you have any brains you can work it out anyway.
If I had a license that allowed him to do it then that's my problem if
not then I would certainly follow it up and be excited about the
opportunity of getting:
a. associated with Trent Reznor
b. A big studio payout
c. Publicity for my original work
d. The chance to talk about it when I'm in the company of people I need
That's a good start but in most cases unlikely to get you any money.

True, but how many listeners know the difference between a song crafted
100% without any other artists work and a song that had a couple of
For example. How many people would know the name of the Artists Moby
sampled for his signature track? He is very open about it and has full
permission to use it, he even lists the original artist on his CD.
By far the vast majority of people dancing and listening to music have
absolutely no idea of the history of music apart from a couple of
Beatles tracks and a few of their favorite songs.
Getting upset about someone making a remix and not mentioning the
original author is pissing in the wind. It happens constantly in the
music industry and is never going to stop. Most people don't even care
who made the song or where it came from if they can dance, drink or get
laid when it's playing.
On top of that telling other people on this list who have got the balls
to share their work with the community to *effectively* fcuk off until
they make something "Original" is an outright insult.
Anyone who backs up Ron on that one had better get ready to have a
fight, and I use knives so you better be packing!! ;-]
BTW I respect Ron and his work but I am not prepared to let that little
slight go by. tX is a highly undervalued piece of software and anyone
who uses it deserves more encouragement to do whatever the hell they
feel like with it. If a member of this list personally doesn't like
artwork that is made public here then they are free to criticize it but
telling someone to stop doing what they are doing because they are not
original is BS.
I have yet to meet a DJ who has not got a sample in their collection or
has not been heavily influenced by someone else's music to the point of
having a couple of tracks that emulate or borrow heavily from the
"originator". In fact you can't really call yourself a DJ if you don't
have other peoples work in your collection.
In fact I have yet to hear any truly original music being released by
anyone in this community. Should we all just give up now?
