Derivative music, then and now


Blogger Jim Lippard has put together an interesting mini-essay on derivative musical works and copyright spanning copying among classic rock groups in the 1970s, a 1983 science fiction story about perpetual copyright extension, and recent sampling madness.

Read it for a reminder of the need for more reasonable copyright (hence CC) or to pick up some interesting trivia if you don’t need that reminder.
