you know we might never have heard Andrew Lloyd Weber's "The Phantom of the Opera" if he hadn't borrowed that melody from Pink Floyd's "Echoes"
but isn't taking a melody and incorporating it into a larger work with a stage production, acting and i'm sure some amount of original musical input make it a transformative use of the music?
sounds like fair use to me, we're talking melody lines not entire songs getting ripped right?
this story almost seems fake. this article was written by the NY times are we sure that they didn't just regurgitate the first hot lead that was whispered in their ear?
I just think this sounds like that kid who planted false info on Wikipedia about some dead French guy and nobody stopped to check any facts about it before writing his obituary.
