I was reading the Techdirt article ‘Derivative Artwork Inspiring Derivative Artwork — But Will The Lawyers Ruin It?‘ About the work of Girl Talk and the surrounding copyright issues of mashups and their use of sampled music. Funny thing is, I didn’t find the article itself that compelling, but the analogy used comparing mashups made of sampled music and incorporating dance techniques just seemed to be on the mark. So I tried to come up with a more fitting analogy and I think I succeeded! Oh, and as a side note, I changed my mind on some of my positions on Sampled music, mashups and copyrights. I also gave my rebuttal of an opinion in the comment section of the Techdirt article.
Here’s the quick poll that a said I’d put in the post. Let me know what you think.
