Did Phantogram Sample Geoff Barrow Without Permission?

He certainly seems to think so...

Previously, Portishead member Geoff Barrow took umbrage with The Weeknd for sampling / re-creating (delete as appropriate) his track 'Machine Gun' on 'You Belong To The World'.

Now the producer seems to have spotted another infringement. Last night (September 8th) Geoff Barrow tweeted a Whosampled link to Phantogram, asking why one of his drum loops for The Jimi Entley Sound track 'Charlie's Theme' seemed to have been used without permission.
