Have you ever listened to a new hit song on the radio and pointed out elements of an older hit within it? A guitar riff from a classic rock song or a vocal from an eighties song? Have you ever wondered if it is legal to incorporate older melodies or harmonies into new songs? Industry experts will define the types of samples that exist in the music business. A music producer will explain why older songs are sometimes incorporated into new compositions. An entertainment attorney will discuss legal aspects of clearing samples. A music publisher will show how samples affect songwriter splits. A major label representative will explain how sampling affects royalty income streams.
