Music Licensing and Plagiarism

When working on explaining concepts in training classes, I've found it very helpful to find things that those in attendance are already familiar with. For the purposes of working with teens on the issues of Plagiarism I'm working on the idea of connecting the idea of plagiarism to licensing music (especially in Hip-Hop). With the 6th District Court's ruling in Westbound Records Inc. v. Dimension Films that if you "want to sample you've got to license", I think this is an even better example than ever before...Stay tuned.
