Mine has, it's been released under another name without mentioning my name.
Which is basicly stealing.

http://www.youtube.com/user/pRKvlogsnupdates

He also sent me a PM telling me that it's just a coincedence and that we both made the same track.

(I quote: Hello Avizura,
Until yesterday I had never even heard your name before. And it would appear we have a problem on our hands. Well you see, we both have two tracks. Yours being "Year of the Dragon" and mine being "Study of the ancient art". A subscriber of mine on youtube told me about this and I checked it out. I noticed that these tracks both sound exactly the same. Considering you uploaded yours before me it would seem like I stole your song. But I assure that this is all a very very strange coincidence and I just happened to make something that sounds the same. I understand that this whole entire situation seems to be very unlikely but I want you to know that I would not get any glory out of stealing another persons work (Especially another brony) . Rather you choose to believe me is your choice or not. But I just wanted to let you know of this strange predicament and hoping that you will not be angered at the situation. You're Twilight-licious track is amazing btw.

Yours Truly,
pRK /)
)

A person with an IQ higher than 10 might know that it's impossible to build the EXACT same track.

But what IS strange is that I'm a brony aswell and that he used my track as "Twilight"'s theme (which is my favorite pony)

Anyways, I digress,

Any tips?

If you have a video with your track uploaded on youtube , go and fill out the Youtube copyright infringement form

They should take out his account in less than a day if the information you gave them is clear and helpful.

and about the pony thing.......

I really don't know anything about them, just kill them.......

nice and slowly

Music is my passion , not my business.

I've checked the song with anti-sound: Avizura's song and the other one cancel each other out perfectly, so they're identical. I've commented on his song by the way, saying that he obviously stole it.

I've commented/flagged as well. These thieves all need to go die a slow painful death... It's even worse that he expects you to believe it's just a coincidence that he happens to have somehow created the exact same song as you.

Nobody's music is being stolen, here... it's just all coincidentally being remade by him.


Need some music for a flash or game? Check it out. If none of this works send me a PM, I'm taking requests.

Thanks guys! It would be handy if we could just put a copyright thingy on the audio-file, or something like that.

LOL!

This dude needs to have his fingernails popped off. What a fucking idiot.

What's your deal travis. You're pretty morbid about copyright infringement.

Also, wtf is pony music anyways? Just sounds the same as regular music.

I got a great laugh out of this.

Followed by utter and complete depression.

Does anyone think they can actually fool someone with BS like that? As they might say in a Peter Jackson movie - "you have my axe." Down to help flag and remove this complete buffoon's presence from the 'net.

Ok. So I just had a little chat with him.

What do you think? Guilty? Or not?

Me: I'm just wondering why you stole my track. (No offence or anything, I'm not angry, I'm just wondering why)

He: I didn't though. It was just you. And I've already made my apologies. And I don't want my other subscribers thinking that I'm a huge fraud because of one song. When I'm not.
I just don't want to deal with this man. I just want it to end. I have enough stress in my life.

Me:Ah, okay, but can you show me the project of one of your tracks.

Just to prove that you're the creator of these.

Then I'll leave you alone.

He:I was unaware of this when I saved these tracks but all that's left of it is a 10 second shitty midi file. You're probably not going to believe me but that is the truth.

Me: All the tracks? I'm sorry, but you CAN'T make that many tracks without saving them once.

I've been making music for more than 5 years and I know that it's impossible to make that many tracks, perfectly mastered without saving a single time.

Look.

I'm not saying you stole the tracks.

But if you did.

You would be a real man to stand up and say that you stole them.

If people find out that their track has been stolen, you will be in even more trouble.

Now just think about this and I'll leave you alone.

If he did steal it, then he has a lot of subscribers with music he didn't make.

lol for a 10 minute 26 second 44,1kHz 16 bit song there's something like a 1:1,815,006,412,800 chance of that happening.

He: I'm not making it up though. I'm telling you the truth. I DON'T need this right now. My life is stressful enough as it is. Please man. Just hear me out. I've made that mistake a lot. I leave my computer on with the project still open. I've only saved up the midi. And I forget to save it up to the full point. Seriously I'm going through a lot right now. School, work, sports, people have been trying to get me in trouble and targeting me at school. Music and ponies are my only outlet for any of that stuff.
I just. I just don't need this seriously I've been depressed for weeks. This isn't helping. I would gladly send you the midi file if that is enough for you. Because it is all I have.

me: I don't want to make your life even more stressful and depressing you know ...

Just keep enjoying these things.

But if you steal tracks, the people who originally made them will be depressed and stressed aswell.

Just stay cool okay?

And if I find people who know the original uploaders of the tracks you uploaded (I'm not saying you stole them, but just in case!, don't get stressed or anything)

I'll hit you up again.

How about that?

Bullshit. He deserves no sympathy. To stand up and say to you, "Oh, no I didn't steal your music" when he blatantly did is an invitation to an ass-kicking!

Why doesn't he just admit it that he stole it?
