    I love how samples are always "stolen" if the source isn't obscure, but cover are lauded "tributes."

    "I didn’t make a dime off that song. I released it for free. If anything I’m paying homage.”

    Releasing your music for free is the way forward, especially when labels display this kind of c***ish behavior.
    I hope Frank doesn't roll over on this one. He's not using the sample for commercial gain or personal profit.

    It's a free mixtape so Henley is not entitled to a dime. The best he could do is to scare Ocean into pulling the mixtape from his website which I think has happened.
