Don Joyce (of Negativland)

“Copyright law does not distinguish between sampling and counterfeiting. That’s just stupid, that’s just art-oblivious, and that’s just no way to proceed in this century. Or the last one. It doesn’t bode well for the future of art that the law can’t distinguish between this simple idea that’s been around for a hundred years, that art can be made out of other art. If you prevent people from doing it, you’re really constricting art itself.”
