Thanks for your clarity on these complex issues, Lee. Clearly DJing should not
be outlawed by this discussion. In terms of traditional Vinyl DJing, the
copyright is satisfied by the venue paying public performance rights,
copyright can theoretically be traced by reading the record labels. I think
if a piece is clearly presented as a DJ mix and the component parts are given
correct attribution, then morally I would rest my case even if copyright law
does say otherwise.
However, if a piece is presented as an original work and you are claiming
authorship, then I think it is reasonable to say that one SHOULD seek
permission for samples used. OK, this definition would create a fair number
of corner cases, but it's far from fluffy.
In any case respect is the issue.
We are the people We've been waiting for.
