(Almost) Anti-Copyright Youtube Video

Email Print

LRC writer Robert Wicks posted this very interesting video on Facebook about the history of a 6-second drum break from a 1969 pop song that went on to be used in many rap songs a generation later. (I’m not even a fan of rap music, yet the story that the video tells is quite interesting for those who are interested in popular music in general.) At the end of the video, the producer of the video goes into a fairly extensive talk about how copyright laws stifle creativity. Though the producer is not against copyright laws 100% (only their excessive use), he does make many of the same valid points that have been written on this issue by Jeff Tucker and Stephan Kinsella.
