Sampling is a good point. It should definitivly be allowed. Have you
ever heard of Johannes Kreidler? He is a german avant garde artist
mainly focussing on critizising sampling laws.
Sampling should also be allowed independent of the way to retrieve the art.
"First sale" is a little bit difficult if you have a total "get
everything for free" culture, since it would get really difficult to
establish the first sale. If we promote such a system, we'd had a really
difficult stand towards artists. I prefere promoting artist, that
already share their art instead of forjudging artists.
