Agreed. "...failing to obtain permission to release their CD with our sound
Whose sound exactly ? I guess they are claiming copyright over the
recording as opposed to the "composition" but that's quite offensive.
They say loads of people have sampled their CDs - do they all pay a
royaltty or did Irdial just go for WEA to get some cash, or were they just
narked that they were never asked ???
Personally, I made a track a few years ago that had a russian numbers
station on it, taped off shortwave by myself and then cut up number by
number - what happens if that station is also on the Irdial discs ? How do
I prove that I made that recording from radio and didn't sample it from
their CD (I know there are ways to do it, just making a point).
You're right - this leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
