Haha, yeah. On first read I was like. Awww. *sad face. But then after a few re-reads I decided to take it with a pinch of salt and that I can see where you were coming from. :)


Erm, eh....yeahhhh..

20% groovy parts and 80% is the break between. It's a nice chilled groove but far too drawn out. And the noise just sounded like crap, needs some low pass filter to sound like pleasant vinyl noise

that. is. a. good. idea. imma do that now.
why not leave reviews now and again?

Maybe there was a big tie and A Bot got confused and shot himself. Bot suicide is a real issue folks. Let us pray for him and his family.

I think there was a glitch in voting too. When I went to 5 it right after the next tops right after NG's midnight time, it came up with an error even though it was just a few minutes after the new day started.

Redesign must be imminent :3.

It was brought to Wade's attention and has been fixed in the Audio portal.

Ownage!!!

Lol jk, but I still wonder why the mods havent taken it down

I'm going to suppose (just for the sake of it) that the copyright only applies when you are utilizing the sample for commercial purposes, otherwise I guess its just fine, so leave the woman in peace, let her enjoy her first ray of exposure, we all deserve a chance.

It didn't say so when I downloaded it, but if it's really hurting you having my song up then message a mod about it.

Just because it didn't say explicitly "this is copyrighted" doesn't mean it isn't. You should never assume anything about copyright law.

Besides, using samples is strictly against the rules of the AP.

As for your comment on "if it's really hurting you, you should contact a mod" - it really isn't, and I won't. I personally don't care at all about your song - I don't give a shit if you used a sample, or where you got it from, or whether it was "legally purchased" or if its licensed, or if Saint Peter himself descended upon the Earth and gave you the Lord God Almighty's permission to use it.

Why don't I care? Because I'm here to write and share my music with other artists, with gamers, and with flash developers. I'm NOT here to play a game of SONY/BMG/YouTube and call out every single song that uses sampled content; I'm not the type of person who goes around blowing whistles and ringing bells to get people into trouble.

BUT it might be wise to re-upload the song without the sampled vocals. Unless it directly and negatively impacts contests or something of that nature, I personally don't care. But just be warned that there are plenty of people who DO scour the portal looking for songs that break the AP rules.

And with that, I wash my hands of this conversation.

I had vocals in my songs too, one of them was recreated, but nobody cared.
If I was forced to remove it, I don't see why someone should be an exception to that rule, just because he is more popular.
