I just rewatched the original Blade Runner and noticed that in one of the scenes where the police sirens are heard (starts roughly at 01:26:30) is the exact same sound as the sirens from the track 08 - Velveteen of GITS:SAC soundtrack.
It's pretty much common knowledge that Ghost in the Shell universe and aesthetic was inspired in a large part by the previous works in sci-fi genre, Blade Runner especially. Is there any trivia about this specific sample being included into the track? As far as I know, clearing legal right for using audio clips from copyrighted works (like songs and movies) takes a lot of work. Was there any notable publicity about this?
Here's a video of the moment in the movie matched up with the track:
