To cite someone elses work is a most important technique in arts.
Beginning with a simple parody up to zeniths like Mahlers variations on
a theme from Bach and Charles Mingus playing american songbook standards.


Its economics, indeed. And it is NOT originality or authorship as a
wrong concept. If I cite/adapt someone, I keep my listeners informed
that I do -- that is a matter of respect for me. Andi it does not
diminish my own part of the work at all.

The problem is: if there is someone, that wants to cash in for a
citation, many musicians dump respect for the original authors simply to
avoid weasel-bites.

Longer sampling can be and covers are another matter: as soon as you
make money with a piece building upon long samples or that you cover,
you should pay a share to the original authors/producers.
