Samplin' article with obligatory Strut references (and Thes One)

Interesting stuff, but it brings me back to the same place as when I first learned about the laws around sampling, and read stuff around Illegal Art, Negativland, Evolution Control Committee etc. where they really pushed for a total revamp of how copyright law and "transformative work" function. Seems more urgent than ever, but the possibility for politicians to do something against a big industry has totally withered and died. 
I just love sampling, I love the music that does it, I always will, so I want there to be a place for it.
