From No Copyright Intended to A Small Reaction to No Copyright Intended, where Faruk Ateş says:

We already have this system in place for music. It’s why DJs can do what they do. We should probably look to that model and adapt it.

p.s. this was written on December 11, I don’t know why I didn’t publish it then. Weird.
