What are some recommendations to spot copyright infringement?

From a song standpoint, we recommend you play the material and use Shazam and/or Soundhound to see if it picks any samples. Yes, this sounds very simple but is often very helpful in seeing if the song is originally produced.

We then recommend you create a contract that a artist or fellow co-musician signs that clearly states that all of the material, every piece of it is 100% original. If any samples are used, ask where and note it down on the agreement. There are sample sites that let you do productions with sound samples so its potentially ok for some samples but you want to document as much as possible.
