How did the Depression-era folk-song collector Alan Lomax turn out with a songwriting credits on Jay-Z’s tune “Takeover”? Why doesn’t Clyde Stubblefield, the first drummer on James Brown recordings from the overdue Nineteen Sixties akin to “Funky Drummer” and “Cold Sweat,” receives a commission for different musicians’ common use of the beats he played on these songs? The tune industry’s method of electronic sampling—the act of incorporating snippets of latest recordings into new ones—holds the solutions. Exploring the complexities and contradictions in how samples are authorized, Kembrew McLeod and Peter DiCola interviewed greater than a hundred musicians, managers, legal professionals, execs, reporters, and students. in keeping with these interviews, Creative License places electronic sampling into old, cultural, and felony context. It describes hip-hop in the course of its sample-heavy golden age within the Eighties and early Nineteen Nineties, the proceedings that formed U.S. copyright legislations on sampling, and the labyrinthine licensing method that musicians needs to now navigate. The authors argue that the present process for licensing samples is inefficient and bounds creativity. for example, through estimating the present-day licensing charges for the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique (1989) and Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet (1990), albums from hip-hop’s golden age, the authors convey that neither album may be published commercially this present day. gazing that a similar dynamics that create difficulties for remixers now reverberate all through all tradition industries, the authors finish by way of reading rules for reform.

Interviewees include David Byrne, Cee Lo eco-friendly, George Clinton, De los angeles Soul, DJ foremost, DJ Qbert, Eclectic procedure, El-P, lady speak, Matmos, combine grasp Mike, Negativland, Public Enemy, RZA, Clyde Stubblefield, T.S. Monk.
