Drake Wins Sampling Fair Use Case (Smith v. Cash Money Records) #wtfu

Jimmy Smith was a pioneer of jazz on the Hammond B3 electric organ. One of this albums included a spoken word track where he claimed “jazz is the only real music that’s gonna last”.

Drake used this sample to say that “only really music is gonna last” and the Court deemed this Fair Use under Copyright Law.

Let’s find out why.

I make your video and post it to Youtube!

Suggest a topic for a video and I will make a video on the subject! The video will be approx 5 to 15 minutes long in my typical "talking head" format. I will cover the topic from my perspective and without pretense or prejudice. You will receive sponsorship mention at the beginning and the end of the video as well as in the description/credits. Your topic and my presentation of it must be capable of being Youtube-friendly in order for me to accept your sponsorship.

I fully expect anyone sponsoring at this level will support only for one month and will edit their pledge once they are charged.
