Samples VS Music VS copyright
2 years 1 month ago #1
I am a bit confused about audio and copyright. Is the legislation same in all European countries?
I do understand that musicians protect their songs, and music do have originality so you can't pick a two second sample from a song that people recognise. But it get pretty weird if you sample an alone snare or bassdrum from song? Is that also copyrighted?
And what about sample CD's, and the individual sample do they have originality enough to be copyrighted? I read that even a microsecond long audio wav can be copyrighted, is that really true?
