No doubt the laws for the type of thing Goodman did are different from the laws regarding copyright infringement on songs, but it sounds as if Goodman may have believed a myth that seems to have been around forever. We used to hear that one could use up to 4 bars of another song with no infringement, and sometimes I would hear that it was 8 bars. Both are incorrect, but the latter is especially ridiculous since, in the case of an AABA song, 08 bars could be 1/2 the song, melodically. I'm no music law expert, but attorney Al Schlessinger was a guest during a Tommy Boyce songwriting seminar that I took around '76, and he discussed this type of thing in some detail. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Flip side is "My Best Friend". Produced by Joe Venneri. Both sides are nice; pleasant little bouncy white girl pop fluff. Any info available on this group? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
