OK so there are many producers,DJ's,and just basic people with computers that sample music and do mash-ups. but the law has started cracking down more and more on these people, and people are getting sued for sampling and mash-ups, like Danger Mouse when he came out with the gray album, in which he took Jay-z's acapellas from his black album and mashed them with the instrumentals of the Beatles white album (which came out dope btw) and then was sued by capitol records for copyright infringement. and then you have biz marke who was sued by the monkeys I believe, and the list goes on.. what do you think about this do you think its fair to restrict music in this way? why?

biz markie was sued by gilbert o'sullivan, it completely changed the game on sampling as well. de la soul was sued by the turtles for a sample on their first record. it's why you don't see much sample based production in hip hop now (which sucks), who wants to pay the prices that some people have for their material. I never heard that jay-z grey album but have you heard the wu-tang clan vs. the beatles record that came out last year, that was some hot sh*t.1
