As Goes Music....?
In brief, apparently the liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that it is absolutely fine for one musician to cut and paste a particularly good bit of someone else's copyrighted work into their own new work.
Is .23 seconds minimal? One might think so, even if the new work is 120 seconds long. How, though, would that compare to, say, cutting and pasting a 230-word scene from a 120,000 word novel? Acceptable? What do you think.
All the best,
