One Beat

This video discusses the history of the "Amen break," widely considered a foundational beat of hip hop and electronica, and how it serves as a metaphor for debates surrounding copyright of music not strictly available in the public domain. It's a long video, so if you're curious, the copyright analysis starts around the 10 minute mark. (More after the jump.)
