Digital sampling and other methods of copying give individuals a powerful means of commenting on the media. This technology is not being used to its fullest potential because of concerns about copyright infringement. Many artists believe that appropriating electronic broadcasts for the purpose of comment and criticism should be considered a fair use. The Supreme Court’s recent decision in the 2 Live Crew parody case (Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc., 1994) supports this interpretation of copyright law.
