I just got a Hercules RMX board and I did a couple of remixes, but I'm not sure if its ok to upload them up to Newgrounds. The one I made is called Next Gen Illmerica, both of the tracks used are made by Wolfgang Gartner, I'm not usre if its legal for me to upload them. Can someone help me with this matter?

It is legal only if you did not use any samples from the original song in your remix, nor any other copyrighted samples.

Here are some useful links. They should cover thing adequately

- Guidelines for submitting audio. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

- A few things you should know about how we handle copyright infringements

- If you notice any audio content that breaks site rules, provide a link to it in the Audio Portal Cleanup Thread

- You'll probably want to read up on Creative Commons and how that works.

Welcome to Newgrounds Audio Portal btw. :)

Thank you for your help, this helped a lot. I'll look through it and do some changes and some research to make sure its legal.
