I hate to sound like I'm disagreeing for the sake of disagreeing but maybe you should all be a bit more compassionate towards Heat's predicament. I mean, you all remember what happened with Dj-Immune right? If I remember correctly, he did what he did because he wanted what he seen other artists on here getting: Praise and acceptance. I guess to some people, it's reason enough to claim other people's work as your own and there might be a similar reason behind what Heat did too.

These guys didn't do it because they wanted financial gain or anything like that, they just wanted a slice of the good feeling you get when someone says "Hey man, awesome track!" which is why I think we should be reaching out with an olive branch and helping the guy to actually produce his own music. Not modifying other people's track, actually making your own tracks from scratch.

Heat, if you wanna' work on a track together, I'd be happy to show you some of the stuff I know and help you out a bit. Not that I'm trying to be condescending or anything, I literally do just wanna' help you out.

If he was doing it for financial gain, then I would think he's still an asshole, but at least he has a good reason behind it...But fuck man, taking someone else's tracks and calling them your own is a dick move no matter what you do, I can't believe you feel sorry for him.

We all had to go through the tough times where we were noobies, and couldn't produce anything worthy for a long long time. Hell, I've been working at it for several years now, and still have trouble pumping out good tracks.

Seriously, anyone who copy's someone else's work, fuck them.

I know but I just think it's better to set him on the right track rather than banishing him from NG.

In what way can you make money by claiming someone's music as your own?

On Newgrounds, Of course.

Do you even understand the point I'm trying to make or are you just being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole.

I think he understands it very well. And he's right.
Although he could have used a better example.

I won't say exactly how much, but I've been paid twice. It's not life changing, but imagine if I got that money through songs I didn't even make.

Meh, don't get too excited about a small and unknown company like Disney. You should wait for the more bigger companies to contact you, like Touchstone. They're much bigger than Disney and everybody knows them.

In all seriousness, congratu-fucking-lations! :D

Hey dude, do you have a broken elbow? I read that in the NAC discussion thread. If so, I'm sorry to hear that :( I've never broken anything so I don't exactly know how it feels, so yeah...

I don't think I need that much luck, as it seems I'm highly resistant to accidents and illness. I'm never sick, last time I puked (without being drunk) was when I was 7, I've never broken something, I've never been a patient in a hospital, I've never been in a dangerous situation except when it was intended (I'm kind of a daredevil) etc etc. Only if lasers came out of my eyes...
