If you license a song from someone who stole it from a CC license, who is legally responsible?

Timbaland didn't just use a sample, he used the whole chiptune track as well and just added a few other sound layers like a drum beat.

I hate this. The notion that everything must be owned is ridiculous. I'm sick of articles like this that accuse artists of "theft". You can steal what can't be owned. I'll explain: In Canada, we fundamentally believe in free health care, and, to summarize it simply, I think it's because a) it benefits the entirety of our population and b) advances in medicine are made by the contributions of innumberable researchers. Music, the codes and rules of the language, has also evolved based on the miniscule contributions by innumberable people. And up until present day, there was no "copyright" to speak of. Artists, including the greats like Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, freely appropriated whole portions of other artists' work. And more importantly, music is completely irrelevant without an audience. If you want to make music for only yourself, fine, make it and listen to it. That can be really fun. But for music to truly come alive, it has to be shared. And, as any musician knows, you don't go around charging people money for your music right off the bat -- you gotta win each and every member of the audience. In other words, the audience has the majority of the power. In fact, if I want you to stop making noise, I have the right to make you stop. You can't just go around public giving away FREE music, even if you wanted to! I'm a musician, and I don't like the idea that musicians shouldn't get paid. But I think arguing in favor of something that doesn't really make sense won't work, in the long run -- look at the record industry today. It took one small technological leap to throw the whole thing out of wack. So my belief is that artists have to focus on the performance aspect to make more money, and, more importantly, that musicians need to band together, and musicians' unions need to more strongly fight for commissioned works -- meaning, if you are approached by a label, they don't LOAN you the money (which is effectively what the case used to be), but that they PAY a percentage UP FRONT, and withhold full payment until the job is complete. It worked for the greats of the classic period, it can work now.

Stupid hipster music. It's so lacking in talent and originality it makes cybergoth music look good and thats saying something..actually thats quite a horrifying thought. I like how the scenester non-conformist conformists think being completely shit is "cool". my advice : spend less time on your makeup and crying and start learning how to make your own sounds.

[...] it or not, chiptune/8-bit music has been around much longer than Crystal Castles has been ripping it off. If you’ve never been to a live chiptune performance before, what you might see is a guy [...]
