Rap Music and De Minimis Copying: Applying the Ringgold and Sandoval Approach to the Digital Samples  

18 Cardozo Arts & Ent. L.J. 227 (2000)

Applying the Ringgold and Sandoval approach to music sampling provides a solid outline for evaluating digital sampling suits and gives artists, specifically rap artists, with guidance on how much sampling is too much in the eyes of the court. The author believes that “judicial recognition of the appropriate application of the Ringgold and Sandoval approach to digital samples would further validate the contention that copyright infringement in the digital sampling context should be evaluated in the same manner as all other copyrightable subject matter.”
