Sampling Ethics

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

After working with electronic music this semester, I feel like it depends if it is acceptable.  For me, I would find it a little more acceptable if I am making a piece of music for fun and not for sale.  But even if I am making it for fun or for school, I would want to at least give credit for the sample.
I feel like it isn’t morally acceptable to use samples without permission if I am planning to use it for selling my music.  Then I am taking somebody else’s work and taking money and credit for it.
