Referencing of lyrics/text and/or music has been a respected practice in many cultures and traditions. I have written this and will write future posts to show that in our society – Western, North American, South American, U. S. (and elsewhere) – we commonly reference. Culture is built by expression which is manifested by origination, accretion, reference, imitation, reproduction and other means.
In my opinion, in the examples below, copyright has NOT been infringed. These are examples of fair use.
