Abstract

The contentious law and ethics of sampling saw a dramatic, if incremental development in the case of VMG Salsoul v. Madonna Louise Ciccone. The Ninth Circuit found that a de minimis argument can be used in sampling cases for the first time since the previously dominant Bridgeport v. Dimension Films. The case sets up a circuit split with the 6th circuit, one that could bode well for those wishing to engage in musical appropriation art.
