Contemplated posting this in the Sample Rules thread but I thought it deserved it's own separate discussion.

For a while now I've been contemplating sampling off youtube. Not just uploads of vinyl or anything, I already do that. Youtube also has alot of people demonstrating there skills on several instruments, for instance this kalimba video:


Along with a lot of drumming videos I've always really liked the dirty feel of these videos because they are usually recorded with a DIY flipcam or something..
I've been wanting to sample some of these videos but never really took the step. I've even contemplated contacting the uploader to ask for permission but it just seems weird..

So my STMB peoples, what's your take on this?

Go and research, FLAC, WAV, MP3, and sound being ruined the moment it gets posted on you tube, other than that contact the guy, he may have better recordings, you don't know till you ask.

It may sound hypocritical as someone who primarily makes sampled beats but it's more of a stealing issue that's bothering me..

You know what? Stop concerning yourself with whatever anyone else think and sample whatever the fuck you want.
