 Digital sampling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Digital sampling, PCM sampling, or just sampling is the process of representing a signal waveform as a series of numbers which represent the measurement of the signal's amplitude, taken at regular intervals.
Sampling produces a series of values which may be represented in various ways - the output from the process can be a series of analog pulses (Pulse-height modulation) or a series of fixed amplitude pulses (Pulse position modulation or Pulse-width modulation).
In digital sampling, the accuracy of the resulting waveform is also affected by the stepwise nature of the digitising process, resulting in what is referred to as 'Quantisation error.

 Music and Theft: Technology, Sampling, and the Law : Conference
Sampling raises copyright law's characteristic tensions: the sound recording is both private property, enabling an author or musician to get paid for her work, and an element of communication and culture.
The Music and Theft conference will bring together artists and experts on the technological foundations and the artistic and cultural implications of sampling, along with experts on copyright law and licensing arrangements, to discuss ways in which the law does and should affect sample-based music.
Musicians on this panel will demonstrate the digital manipulation of preexisting recordings and MIDI files and discuss the impact of digital technology on music production and music theory.  An experienced music attorney will discuss the legal consequences of the particular practices demonstrated by the musicians, as well as the law's overall responses to digital music.

Today's music technology inevitably favors unlimited mass reproduction, which is one of the reasons why the music industry, using the weapon of copyright, is always fighting a rearguard battle against its free availability.
There are obviously ethical considerations here --it's easy to understand James Brown's outrage as his uncredited beats and screams underpin much of today's fl music-- but at its best, today's new digital, or integrated analog and digital, technology can encourage a free interplay of ideas, a real exchange of information.
Often "samples" consist of one part of a song used in another, for instance the use of the drumline from Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" in songs by the Beastie Boys, Mike Oldfield and Erasure.

 "Sampling and New Independent Dance Labels: The Importance of Understanding Copyright Law"   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Music Week highlighted the success of dance music as a contributory factor to increased sampling, and cited John Fogerty as saying that “the new breed of artists don’t seem to understand or want to understand the whole essence of copyright … what we must do is educate people …”.
As the music industry in the UK continues to develop an increasingly formalised approach to music business education (by virtue of a wide range of taught courses up to Masters level), then the next generation of record label managers may perhaps be more educated with regard to copyright and sampling.
This sampling may be undertaken with the best of intentions (to honour, adapt and elevate an existing piece of music or lyric); however, as mentioned, it remains wholly illegal.

All musical recordings consist of both a musical work and a sound recording, each of which is protected by copyright law, unless the copyright term has expired and one or both copyrighted works has entered the public domain.
The first is the underlying musical composition, comprised of the written notes and lyrics (for purposes of copyright law, the musical composition is referred to as a "musical work").
It is possible that some of the older musical compositions you plan to use are in the public domain (i.e., their copyright has expired), but determining the public domain status of a given musical work gets rather complicated.

When we created the sample policy at (record label x), we tried to setup rules for samples.  What surprised me was the objection to the restriction requiring artist consent.  It seemed surprising that artists would object the having to get permission from another artists regarding the right to use their work.
The open use of samples is of value to HipHop aritsts, so it makes sense they want these laws to weaken.  The Beatles do not share this ideology.  The artist should be allowed to decide upon their opinion.
