80s Hip-Hop and Sampling w/ KJ Greene

Will and Kat speak with law professor K.J. Greene about the impact of copyright law on 1980s hip-hop. Did the lack of clarify in the law allow hip-hop to flourish in the 1980s? Did the court rulings in the late 1980s and since forever change hip-hop (for the worse)? Email us your thoughts to will@1980snow.com.
