Quote johnny h:

My record company ignore samples unless they are obvious, and they are actually quite a big company with a lot to lose. Why? I don't know, they think its worth the risk and I'm not going to argue with them.

I think the essential point is that music doesn't need any more wallflowers, so if you absolutely need to do something then do it. Punk bands used to steal their guitars remember. That does make you a criminal its true but real artists aren't bound by the same rules as mere mortals.



Good to know that an esteemed organ such as SOS is not only, by dint of this thread, allowing - nay, endorsing/encouraging - theft of intellectual property, but our Johnny, it now seems, endorses physical theft.

Oh, happy days.

I'd like to ask Johnny a question. What distinguishes someone who knows a few guitar chords so steals a guitar ... or someone who wants to use someone else's work and talent and recording and just arbitrarily samples that (and the investment that went into making that recording) from a "mere mortal"?

My daughter is not a shabby classical violinist and has a future. Is it ok that she should steal a Guarneri (a Strad would be out of the question of course)? By your reckoning, that would seem to be acceptable, no?

And maybe, next time we're in the violin emporium, she should maybe pilfer a Vuillaume bow ... y'know, just slip it into her violin case when no-one's looking. It would be easy - it would f'ck the emporium's profits, maybe put them out of business but...

That all seems reasonable by your logic it seems.

Are you saying, Johnny, that (ahem) "artists" are somehow 'superior' and somehow exempt from the law compared with "mere mortals" such as, for example, I dunno, nurses or a brain surgeon or even a humble 'lollipop lady' leading children to safety on busy roads on their way to school ... or the chaps who empty your bins, whatever ... you know - people who abide by the law? What a load of total arse gravy!

You have excelled yourself at (once again) expressing personal opinion as an "essential point" AND, rather intriguingly, endorsed intellectual copyright AND physical theft.

Nice one!
