THIS IS FOR THE ESTABLISHED/UP AND COMING PRODUCERS

THIS COPYRIGHT SHIT IS GETTING CRAZY
Pt. 1

If you need evidence of just how ridiculous and broken copyright law has
become, look no further than the legal squall generated by Lil Wayne¹s track
I Feel Like Dying.

Urband & Lazar Music Publishing are suing Lil Wayne for the use of an
uncleared sample from a track by Karma-Ann Swanepoel. That¹s a business
suing, not the actual creator of the track. Oh, and they want to see
financial data from the album Tha Carter III.

I Feel Like Dying isn¹t on Tha Carter III, but: a lawyer for Urband & Lazar argues that Lil Wayne promoted the album by singing that song in concert and allowing fans to download it for free on
his Web site.

So they¹re looking for a slice of money from album sales on a track that
wasn¹t even on the album.

Let¹s just take a moment or two to pull up a chair, and ponder this: Lil
Wayne uses a sample ­ uncleared, admittedly ­ on a track he gave away. So
he¹s being sued on the basis, presumably, that someone who heard the sample
might have gone on to buy the album ­ a someone who wouldn¹t have done so
otherwise.

Pt. 2
Rapper Lil Wayne is suing the producer of a song he performed that allegedly
sampled another singer¹s work without permission.

A lawsuit filed last year against Lil Wayne accuses him of copyright
infringement, saying he failed to secure permission to sample folk singer
Karma-Ann Swanepoel¹s song ³Once² on his track ³I Feel Like Dying.²

A lawsuit filed last week by the rapper¹s lawyers says Rebel Rock
Productions Inc., of Coconut Creek, Fla., produced ³I Feel Like Dying² and
was responsible for obtaining any necessary licensing agreements.
