Everybody's a mixed bag, but who gets the money?

"'Walter Boudreau is frustrated by the attempts of cultural institutions, such as the Académie Française, to keep language, art, music, whatever, pure. 'How foolish. We're all impure. Everybody's a mixed bag. Everything is in constant transformation.'"

Lloyd Whitesell "chose to pose more questions. Who owns music? Do people borrow or steal music, or is music in the public domain? Drawing on anthropologist Steven Feld's observations, Paul Simon's Graceland was a blend of rock and roll, Cajun, and South African pop, but Simon is the one who gets the money."
