I just jumped into this, I haven't read the whole thread, too big and a bit offtopic sometimes.
I guess this is the usual pro-contra discussion, as I've seen on several forums.
So I'm afraid it's hardly about any nuances concerning technical or artistic aspects.

If I plainly copy/paste a piece of sound made by another person, because I'm a lazy loser,
then I have to pay for the use of it, if the author is a member of some org like the RIAA.
If not, but the author has registered a license like Creative Commons, then it could be that
using the material for commercial purposes is only allowed with approval of the author.
So if used anyway, it's a violation of those rights.

Another perspective is added, when I sample some material and put a lot of effort in
'composing' the sample into what I want it to be.
One can 'rip' some bars from a CD, but how to extract a particular phrase on the hihat,
while there are also six other instruments playing?
In that case, as an EM composer, I consider the CD as raw material of which I create
some sound or instrument, just like a recording in my garden, or something from TV.
KH Stuckhausen made some works where he used long copies of Japanese radio broadcasting.
Nobody complained.

But even if the use of such a sample would be legally free, I would mention the source of the
raw material in the data of my work. A matter of civilisation I think.

From the beginning this whole controversy has been running behind the facts.
Because there was money involved, it was approached only from a legal point of view.
Not from a technical or artistic point of view. So the resulting situation stays fuzzy.

From a tech view sampling starts with the introduction of the digital delays.
A few millisecs of sound are transferred to a memory, which is read out a little later.
From that point, the prediction can be clear : memorysize.
Now, one can make a sample of several hours.

I see that these are very old posts and no one has revisited this turf for a while. I also see there are many here, with mistaken impressions about intellectual property rights.
I thought therefore, that this might be an appropriate forum to announce that the Nightmare Sound Blog in conjunction with Monster Makers Laboratory, will begin featuring a new series on demystifying intellectual property rights and copyright law for artists, that speaks to artists of all
disciplines in a language they can relate to. Hopefully this series will
clarify some questions and clear some obstacles for artists trying to
make heads or tails of all these matters and find a way to take the best
possible advantage of their creative talents and efforts. The feature
will begin appearing sometime this week so keep your eyes peeled, Check
out the Blog and follow it if this subject, or any of the other dark
electronic and experimental music and art covered therein, is of
interest to you. You can check into the Nightmare Sound Blog @

http://nightmaresoundlab.blogspot.com

Artists with suggestions for articles(or articles to submit), wishlists
of topics you would like to see covered, or offerings of other content
should contact me offlist at:
treed@nightmaresound.com

Best,
