If you haven't seen it by now, here it is. The somewhat controversial doc that features remix/mash-up artist Girl Talk. It brings up some great points and information on samples, how they are/can be used, and much more. Enjoy! Also, don't forget to check out the previous recommendation, "Before The Music Dies."
There is also a pretty good article out there right now about clearing samples... "Clearing Samples."
