Cool Radio Piece on Sampling

"On the Media" just ran an interesting feature on sampling called "They Say I Stole This" which can be streamed from their website. Here's their write-up of it:

"Twenty years ago a series of lawsuits criminalized the hip-hop sampling of artists like Hank Shocklee and Public Enemy. And yet, two decades later, artists like Girl Talk have found success breaking those same sampling laws. OTM producer Jamie York talks to Girl Talk, Shocklee and Duke Law professor James Boyleabout two decades of sampling - on both sides of the law."
