do others hold this belief as well? that because a work samples it
should be given away free? is it somehow a lesser art that isn't
deserving of compensation and financial support?? artists who don't
sample can make a living from their music, but samplers shouldn't??
never mind the fact that most of us couldn't make a living from music
even if we really wanted to. i'm all for giving music away, but i
prefer other motives.
