Timbaland admits using the music in this radio interview. Please listen for yourself and spread the word:

There is also a Youtube version, in the above MP3 you have to look around the mid-way mark to find the part.

Ah... thanks! Well, it seems to me like he's basically admitted guilt. He's lying about not having time to find the credits... He released the ringtone first, then one year later he released the song... he had plenty of time.

The way he distinguishes stealing from sampling is just bizarre... It's not stealing as long as you're not in the guy's house???

What kind of artist takes a finished work, adds a drumbeat and sells it as a ringtone?

He's just feigning ignorance in my opinion. He knows that he was on the wrong side of the law when he used someone else's music like that...

Oh come on you guys, his analogy isn't so bad.  I mean, consider this.  What, exactly, does it mean to steal your TV?  Clearly, stealing your TV would be following you to the store, WATCHING you buy it, and then taking it from you.  Okay, that's stealing.  But obviously, if I just take your TV while you're not home or while you're not looking, then that's not stealing, right?  If I see a TV somewhere, clearly it is my right to take it and use it for myself.  That's what we call sampling, not stealing.  Everybody knows that.  Where's your common sense?

Timbaland sounds like he is dodging a punch he has already been hit by, to be honest. He sure do some smooth talking making it sound all acceptable what he did. Typical someone who's guilty.

It's not like this music is very serious or thoughtful, so if he steals a drumbeat and notes from someone else then it doesn't matter. It's garbage music and the only people listening to that stuff are morons. Who cares about musical garbage and what morons think?

I believe Timbaland I don't care what anybody says, alright producers sample stuff all the time, maybe the song didn't say who made it, maybe it just said C-64 or somethin and he liked it and used it. So if you took a newspaper and crumbled it in front of a microphone and used it as a sound in a movie as special effects or something should the newspaper company be mad at you cuz they didn't get paid? That doesn't mean you're a thief.

Oh... My... God - A newspaper - nice comparison :D A newspaper isn't intended to sound, nor is it free to download :D Those people don't really think or they are stupid at all.

Obviously people who write comments like that are people who have never created anything in their lives.  It's hard to believe, but that's the only way one could possibly explain such lack of understanding for how frustrating it is to have someone steal something that you have created.  How could you possibly compare that to making noise with a crumpled newspaper?  It just amazes me that people can be daft enough to make bad analogies like that.

On an unrelated topic, it's time for some Rikimbo poetry!  I found this awesome poem on Wikipedia:
Quote
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.

But it had no credits associated to it... so obviously I will assume that the poem was not created by a human being, and just fell into the public domain as a result of some freak accident involving a blender and a newspaper which scrambled these words in this pseudorandom fashion.  Oh well, I like it, so I'm going to sample it.  Here, for your enjoyment, is my fresh, new, totally original poem:

Rikimbo's Super Special Awesome Poem
Once apon a time,
In a land far, far away,
Roses were red,
Violets were blue,
Sugar was sweet,
And so were you.
I hate my life,
And I want to die.

By Rikimbo.

I hope my poetry has touched your heart, as it comes from the most honest part of mine.
