There are countless instances of music being stolen. We see it on the ground level quite often, and see it at different levels, from DJs playing mixes in clubs that they didnât make (and leaving the vocal drops in so we know who made it), to renaming a file so a producer is taking complete credit for something they didnât make at all. Getting caught doing these things can ruin your career. Some of us come from sample-based culture, and know that there is this grey line. There are two major differences between now and 20 years ago: Clearing samples is actually much more difficult, and there are so many people making music that thereâs no way to chase down every song that is using samples. Artists seem to think that giving away records for free somehow frees them of copyright infringement; SoundCloud wouldnât be flagging you for your Rihanna remix if you were in compliance. Yet when you sell a record, whether it be to a rapper or on iTunes or for a commercial, you are responsible for getting that sample cleared. This goes below the radar more often than you would think. There are probably tens of thousands of songs with uncleared samples being sold on iTunes. If the release doesnât chart or get a mass of plays, you probably wonât have people come knocking on your door, but when widely-known producers sample lesser-known work, and sell that work, they create a huge mess. Baauer and will.i.am are two producers that had the spotlight on them recently, and DAD figured we’d speak to a lawyer (Justin Chapman from The Law Office of T. Justin Chapman, LLC) in an effort to help those out there that have their work stolen and sold.
