I would like to make a proposal. How about me and all the audio mods sing a song acapella and post it to the front page? I guarantee over 90,000 downloads and at least +900 fans.

I would pay ludicrous amounts of money to have that become a thing. Either that or a cheesy 80's pop ballad. :3

So bandcamp is read up on, signed up and account created!

So, Who would be interested in creating a piece for this charity album? There will be a particular theme, I think 12 tracks perhaps would be a good number!

Who's in?

Youtube imposters (sort of)

Is it just me... or is youtube really bad for people pretending to be other people? And I don't mean the channels.

Let me elaborate, twice now, I have had to clarify to people that I am Back From Purgatory. Apparently some other people somewhere else in the world, have been telling their family/friends that they are me.

First, it was some highschool kid, claimed that my youtube account was his, and all his friends believed him... So someone commented on one of my videos once saying something like, "Hey evan (Can't remember the actual name, so... it's Evan for now), keep up the awesome work, see you in school tomorrow"

And of course, I was like, "WTF? Who is this guy? And who the fuck is "evan"?"
When I replied in kind, the guy said that I stole his friends account. So I was like... "Uhhh... no", clarified that I am long since out of highschool, and basically said things that only the creator of my music would know. So he was like, "Oh, I guess he was lying to us, sorry."
And I was like, "Clearly."

And just last night, I get almost the exact same thing. Some girl posted a shitty mash up of some shitty songs and put my name on it, with an "album cover" and everything. I found it while I was searching for monetized videos with my music in it (I got 2 taken down in the process), and naturally commented on it saying, "I don't know why my name is on this, but cool... I guess?"

Then she replied today while I was at work with the below:

well its simple really, i know the actual person who creates the music for Back-From-Purgatory and you're not him. and because of you he doesn't even post his stuff anymore and i have to practically beg just to be able to hear his songs.

That is exactly what she said... I copy pasted that from the email I got with the reply.

So again... I basically went on about how I wish people would stop pretending to be me... and that he's not showing you "his" songs because I haven't posted anything lately for him to steal... Cause I've been preoccupied with a new job and other things.

A few minutes after I posted the comment, she took the video down.

Like... Why do people think they can get away with this kind of shit? In a way, it's getting me more exposure in a round-a-bout away... but I'm not really fond of the fact that there are a bunch of people out there just pretending to be me.

Maybe... I've noticed the site has been a little buggy lately... it took 2 days to change my icon and profile picture, and it took over a week for my signature to update.

I dunno why anyone would delete a post like that, personally, I just know that I didn't.

Hi there, everyone.. Just wondering, does anyone else use Android/iOS devices to control MIDI? I like TouchOSC because it lets me build custom layouts, it's very convenient.

I can only really find the stuff with my name on it honestly. I just go to google and search "Back From Purgatory", including the quotation marks, cause then it looks for the 3 words in that exact order and cuts out a lot of results that aren't really at all related.

I'm sure there are probably a few people out there that have just outright stolen my music and put their own name on it... but I don't really have any way of finding them. Wishing that google would create a reverse audio search.

Ahh yeah, I know about that google search tip.

Google has created a reverse copyright material search, although it seems to only be available to the media corporations, from what I've seen of it, although it has falsely identified content that hasn't been owned by them.

Dang @back-from-purgatory :(
That sucks O: I hope more people won't pull this kind of thing...

In other news, I found out about this guy named dj Xage

He's been taking songs off of Newgrounds and YouTube and posting them up on iTunes via TuneCore. One of the songs he posted happens to be one of mine.
I commented on one of his YouTube video (which had my song on it) accusing him of stealing my stuff. He then proceeded to take down my comment and make A WHOLE VIDEO explaining how he made everything in the song and how you shouldn't trust Newgrounds because their licensing system is crap.

-_-

Also, because of his songs being distributed through TuneCore, the company made a claim on my video for the monetization to be taken down. I tried to dispute the claim providing proof that I made the song, but they reinstated the claim. Now you can see "buy this song by dj Xage" in the description >_>

Ugh
I don't know what to do about this guy.
:(

Check his channel out to see if he stole anyone of your songs. Please, I just want this guy to stoooooop

It really is annoying when people think they can just get away with outright theft.

What song did he steal?

Haha wow. Out of curiosity I checked his channel out and randomly clicked
this one video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSEZs3ABdvs of his
The song that starts at 3:20 or so was vaguely familiar so I did a quick search here on Newgrounds for the same title
and first result: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/491286

Guess what, it's the same song (surprise). And of course the video description "These are my two brand new songs i hope you all like them." I mean, if you are going to steal something and call it your own work at least rename the song you lazy butt.

What an asshole. You send Stratkat a PM to let him know about this? I'm not sure he's been active lately, but I'm sure he'd like to know about this regardless.

Even as a lawyer i am normally a person who thinks its not necessary to think of taking legal steps in most situations. But if i would be an artist and a guy just sells my stuff as his own work i definitely would ... just incredible how brash some people are...

Lame... You're gonna hit him with a copyright claim again, right? If that doesn't work, find a way to get in touch with Youtube and/or iTunes about it, cause that's just not right, the guy needs to be shut down, and if iTunes finds out the guy is selling stolen music, he won't be on the store for very long... That'd be a legal landmine for them.

Oh and I can't wait for your blog vidddd lol

And I can't wait to make it. Aside from answering a bunch of fun... weird... interesting questions... It'll hopefully also stop people from claiming they own my youtube account.

FL Core - gone for years.
NGADM - still going strong, but its annual and not due for a while.
Clabtrap - should be on again this year at some point but i know nothing about it.
AIM - going right now isnt it? so yeah
@Bosa - Sup dude werent you gonna make a hella big contest?
Halloween - still happens every year

I feel like I'm forgetting one but yeah theres plenty to look forward to. Probably some random person will make some random contest with random prizes at some random point too, so there's always that as well.
