yea, just be careful — just because it’s on the web (or even at the archive) does NOT mean it is legal to sample, leave alone re-license and re-post to the web.

Watch for entries that say NonDerivs — that means no sampling.

Also, much of the concert stuff is off limits for samples or any kind of redistribution on the web.

Just don’t assume…

My big question is whether we can use some of that public domain sci-fi and horror stuff. I’m sure it’s all up for grabs. Even movies like "Night of the Living Dead" will do, as long as you use the print that didn’t have a copyright notice on it. (I bet Rob Zombie saved Geffen a bunch of financial headaches by using that movie.)

Now, how about some of those Italian horror movies that were released in truncated versions? Argento, Fulci, etc.
