I love how, when Sony here has used a song without permission, the aggrieved musician is an "artist" and Sony is exploiting them.
But, when someone pirates an MP3, nobody is hurt but the "evil record labels."
In this situation, the money Sony would pay to use the song would go to the RECORD LABEL. I don't understand why people are so excited about taking sides in a dispute between large corporations neither of whom want sharing to succeed, and both of whom are doing their fair share of exploiting.
I mean you're either pro-remixing or not.
