DJ Shadow doesn't usually clear samples, RJD2 just got sued 2 times recently for uncleared samples (his label is a somewhat larger indie, you can buy his stuff at best buy, circuit city, etc. etc, larger distro means bigger risk), most madlib productions, the list goes on. People most definitely are still hoping that their stuff flies below radar.

I know this is off the record, but people always ask about rare samples like that Jadakiss "we gonna make it" or Jaylib "Official" you can find alot of these samples and a whole lot more of rare ish on ?uestloves "Montage" & Donuts "Originals" has all the songs from donuts it will blow your mind to here some of the orginal songs.

yeah huh...
i was just jokin by the way..with that thing i said.

Stones Throw rarely has cleared samples in any of their albums. Of all the stones throw albums i own, the only one that has any cleared samples is Madvillainy...and that was for only one song.

Still gets me to this day. As soon as I got the album (VINYL) in the mail he died. Just put "So Far" and "Last Donut" on repeat the whole day.

"Samples I never clear it
Do I fear it?
No, 'cause that's what makes the underground what it is..."

onlycatz that really know hiphop know dilla. Hell a lot of producers STILL don't know him because it ain't pop as in popULAR to the masses. Dilla never compromised his style and thus wasn't one of those producers w/ a platinum selling roster. As an 'artist' lyracist, he never came out w/ a commercially 'platinum' album, so dude could push like 100k and they won't come after him - trust me on that. He could do 500k GOLD - again on account of what he was to the game that's be slow goin, but ya - he could do 500k and they wouldn't come after him. Now the minute you start selling plat, Thaaaaats when they come and get you.

Most samples aren't cleared on indie records since they sell less than 50K.
But it's a bigger case for an artist signed to a major label since they sell a whole lot more.
So as long as it's not way too obvious,indies can get away with not clearing samples

I feel what you tryin' to say. And Pop music is infact short for popular music in itself. But to help your point even further along. You got Busta, Kanye, hell 'NSYNC and more platinum artists to add to dilla's portfolio. That's how dope he was even Pop artists were forced to recognize what was real.

I think his content was viable for these times too, but like you said, he cared about his music and the ish really wasn't a front to him. Heads from the "D" know exactly what I'm talkin' 'bout. (Fat shouts to SL Carney in them out in the Garden)

if you sell over 100k on a indie or a major. you probably will have guys coming after you. 500k definitly will get sued. plat you will get your ass sued off. even if u sell over 50k on an indie you have a chance of getting sued.

the copyright holders don't give a f*ck who dilla is. they would want their money if went gold

Stones Throw does not clear samples that's why the new Jaylib re-issue album there is no The RED cause they got caught and had to take it off. Stones Throw on a greater scale is still a small time indie label so they ain't clearing **** still.
Nowadays even if you are sampling and don't clear and you only plan on selling under 100K copies you can still get sued. Pepole rat out other producers and their are people who do this **** for a living.

i dont know the answer but i know they put out a compilation called recipe for tasty donuts thats has every song he sampled from the donuts album i just copped it and its amazing how he flipped some of them i wasnt really up on J Dilla much before but damn dude was the best in my opinion just off hearing the donuts album
 
people under the stairs say they never clear samples. Also, if you chop up a sample so that no one can tell what it is, you have a greater chance of not getting sued. and you have to contact the owner of the song's copyright to sample it, ppl usually just hire a company to do it for them.

Interesting thread. How much money would companies made off Dilla's Donuts? Probably not a whole lot. Maybe that's why they didn't sue.

Even if he was dead before the cd was released doesn't really matter, because SOMEBODY released the record. So since Dilla (hypothetical) was dead first, then whomever was responsible for the release of the record is then liable for lawsuit on infringing of copyrighted material.
