Video: Young Guru on Piracy & Invention

It’s so important to remember that if the forefathers of our culture had respected the copyrights of the artists they swiped breaks from, there’s a good chance we’d all be listening to Jazz right now. Here’s a clip from a recent lecture given by sound engineer Young Guru on the relationship between “piracy” and innovation.

Hit the jump for another clip where Guru illustrates the art of sampling with an Al Green clip and Jay-Z’s “Heart of the City”.

    Just HOW is taking a small clip from a recording, changing the pitch and other dynamics of that recording stealing?

    I can understand if you’re taking a 4 second loop and just calling it your own, you should pay the original copyright owner.

    BUT if it’s damn near unrecognizable to the original recording, how is it theft?

    It’s just another way for lawyers to make loot imo.

    Hahahahaha

    TS what if you’re wrong ?

    What is when you transposed the secondary mainframe and rewired the circuit board you forgot to disengage the REO levels and got the wrong name ?

    You’d be destroying someone in the court of public opinion wrongly.

    Gender violence and objectification of this scale read like an apocalyptic story. But it’s not the end of days. A real-life dystopia has taken root in this small North Dakota town, and all it took to bring it on was a dwindling male-to-female ratio.

    ^ a hooker can make some serious bread down there. Or all the chicks who can’t get men would be wifey material. Not in the least a Seattable location though.

    What happens when “high heels and skirts are as rare…as veggie burgers?” Apparently, men turn into neanderthals, and all respect and common decency goes out the window.

    The New York Times paints a bleak picture of what may the the thirstiest city in all of America, an oil town in Williston, N.D, where women are few, and (sexual) tensions runs high. What is a lonely young man to do?

    Harass young women, of course. According to the article, the few women that reside in this testosterone-saturated town are regularly subject to alarmingly high levels of sexual harassment. And we’re not referring to your average terrible pick up lines or catcall. At a small bar, a woman is casually offered $7,000 to strip as if it’s a perfectly acceptable request. Women admit to feeling “unsafe” and unable to run the smallest errand. A stop at Walmart can easily escalate to being stalked. One woman even admits to being pursued by two man who attempt to capture her like prey while walking to work.

    Is this what happens when sex is in scarce supply? John Eligion’s piece paints a disturbing picture of wealthy men who are unable to control their impulses, and descend into depravity like animals. One woman admits to feeling like she’s viewed “as a piece of meat.” Men also take to grading women as such, assigning them numbers based on their desperation. Women attractive enough to fulfill their sexual needs who would be considered “mediocre” elsewhere are deemed a “Williston 10.”

    Gender violence and objectification of this scale read like an apocalyptic story. But it’s not the end of days. A real-life dystopia has taken root in this small North Dakota town, and all it took to bring it on was a dwindling male-to-female ratio.
