speaking of grey areas, i've just stumbled across a project pertinent to
this discussion,
called Soundmosaic - created by
Freenet codeslinger Steven Hazel.

"soundmosaic is a distributed system for constructing an approximation of
one audio sample out of pieces of other samples -- a kind of "photo mosaic"
effect in sound."

hilarious concept really - given a large enough sound library, and enough
raw processing power, it should be possible to regenerate any piece of
audio from fragments of other sounds.
