I wouldn't really consider an entire track from a CD to be a
"small bit". That's another artist's complete work, in my
opinion. It's not quite artistic reuse to make a mix tape -
though there's some creativity in it - and I'd be
uncomfortable defending it in the same breath as
sample-based composition.
