samples from songs

permalink   Sun, Aug 30, 2009 @ 1:14 PM

I often encounter songs, mostly the beats of some hip hop songs, to be sampled on CCmixter, but just showing the acapella as sampling source. I am pretty sure that those samples are not under some CC license, as they mostly sound like some old soul samples. Most of the time the samples are sliced and I am not sure if the original song could even be found out or some fair use paragraph allows to use the sample.

My question simply is, should I flag those? There are some very old and popular ones and I doubt that nobody realized that those are sampled and the source isn’t mentioned

Yes. Please flag.

PLEASE flag flag flag and flag (if you know the originating sample, make sure to mention that in the flag form)
