Morality of Sampling

Do you think that sampling without permission is morally acceptable? If so, why? If not, why not?

Sampling without permission is not morally acceptable as it would be stealing ideas from others without permission. However, if it is not copyrighted, even though sampling would be immoral, the owner would not be able to act upon the sampling. Especially, sampling famous songs such as the melody or lyrics should be done with permission but there would be a limit in limiting beats or chord progression as similarities would inevitably exist.
