I was aware of some of the things mentioned in here as well as the overall idea, but the presentation and research behind it is great and it's a topic worth discussing.

How are you going to file suit against people not paying for your unoriginal, recycled work?
We had many discussions about it in my film classes often concluding with how to apply the Fair Use Act for educational purposes, lol.

i mean there's a reason why if you look at the writing credits on the original vinyls and compare that to the cd reissues there's a laundry list of names behind every other song.
it's true that in a western music context there are a limited number of chord changes/riffs/leads/whatever that are going to be ear pleasing. the minor pentatonic scale does only have five notes. but there's a difference between that and making bank off songwriting royalties for a reinterpretation of a blues standard done without permission.
