Sorry I'm a noob! but if I posted a link to the song via Youtube or soundcloud on the relevant forum is this ok??
Yes! As long as you post it in the proper thread, since if everyone made a new thread about their music then this forum would be filled with self-advertising everywhere!

The strangest part of all this is there's many games/movies on NG that is remaking mario characters simpsons heaps... Oh well :(
Some games and movies here use copyrighted audio, it's true. Tom, the admin, made a post about this a long while ago actually, and as far as I know, while the staff prefers it if all game developers and animators use non-copyrighted resources only, this is tough to enforce, especially in terms of sound effects. A very small amount of people here make good sound effects, so people have to resort to using copyrighted sound effects for their games and movies a lot of the time. It's still quite frowned upon to use copyrighted music and artwork, though, and making money out of submissions which have copyrighted stuff in them could get someone in a sticky legal situation too.
With us musicians, the rules are easier to enforce since there's rarely a need to use copyrighted audio when we make audio ourselves. Movie/game makers often use Audio Portal music in their submissions as well, so needless to say, it's best to make sure that whatever music they use doesn't have any copyrighted samples in it already haha.
If you find any music on here that goes against the rules, then post it here!
