Fatboy Slim died from being too fat, then too slim, then destroying the universe via this paradox.

So I mean, how does someone even go about getting a sample cleared? Would say, an artist talk to his manager, then have his manager talk to the sampled artist's manager? What if the sampled Artist/Band isn't well known, and/or has been inactive for decades, and there's no way of reaching management? I'm just asking out of curiosity.
Also, has anyone on this forum attempted to contact a big person about sampling a song for commercial use?

My point being, if using a sample is such a big deal, then why is Fatboy Slim still finacially stable? If you check out his song "Gansta Trippin'", you'll see what I mean, and here's a breakdown video to prove my point:
-6 Samples at least...
Besides, my view is as long as you sample an old, unrecognised song (And do a good job) Then no one will recognise, and it is not much of a problem. On the other hand if you become popular and eventually start selling your songs, it is absolutley vital that you look into the legality of it.

Yep but also new house artists do a lot of sampling of well known songs. Like my feelings for you, cry a little by bingo players etc. :P They have lawyers to take care of that but this is great advice and I suggest it to anyone!
