You Stole my Alphabets
Name That Note
Is it stealing to copy half a measure from a 1970s funk record? If the intellectual-property hawks have their way, yes.
The stories sound like urban legends, only they're true: A judge halts the distribution of a Bruce Willis movie because one scene resembles a drawing by an avant-garde architect. The Beastie Boys are sued for using a six-second snippet of an obscure flute recording--even though they got a release from the record company beforehand. And, most recently, a federal appeals court holds a film studio liable for a soundtrack tune that includes a three-note guitar lick from a recording by 1970s funkster George Clinton.
What's next, copyrighting a single note? We're almost there. In a digital world, where entire songs and movies can be composed from bits and pieces of other media, lawyers are working overtime to protect what their clients see as the right to be paid for every scrap of intellectual property.
