Sorry, categorically not true. I run the net.label Monotonik:


..and we like people to ask to use derivations, simply because our artists like releasing their material for free, but they want to know and approve of who's remixing it or reappropriating it. And we've said yes to dozens of people since 1996. But the point is, it's nice to be able to say no if you don't agree with what the person is doing, and it's nice to be asked because then you know _what_ they're doing. I don't consider that step to be a horrendous thing. I guess others might :)
