Did The Library Of Congress Just Honor Copyright Infringement?
from the questions,-questions,-questions dept
Copycense also points out how utterly ridiculous this is. The Library of Congress is the home of the Copyright Office, who has done nothing helpful in terms of sample-based music. Copyright law has made it illegal (even if some still practice it, but not in the same manner as it was being done in the past -- at least not "legally.") And yet... here is the Library of Congress honoring just such an album. An album that couldn't actually be released today.
If the Library of Congress really wanted to honor that album, rather than listing it in the National Registry, how about fixing the law so that creativity of that nature is allowed to flow, rather than having it criminalized?
