What we should do is to encourage other to only use free/purchased samples/software. That´s about the best thing to do.. and "X" the sinners :)

Seriously, dude, what the fuck. This topic IS about legal issues. Cover your ears then, does anyone else have the courage (apparently needed) to respond?

I mean, there's always a chance that someone could attempt to sue newgrounds or the author of the flash. But it's not like they're giving the songs bad press, i mean thousands of people listening to your song via the movie, cant be bad can it? Though you never can tell with the music industry types...

If you look at the Flash Top 50 Of All Time, only a few submissions use music from the Audio Portal or stuff the authors composed themselves: the vast majority features copyrighted music.
Yet I'm risking a ban when I use, say, a short vocal sample and a riff from a published punk song...
...Responses?

Its all legality. NG has yet to receive any legal threats regarding people using copyrighted music in flash animations - People arn't selling it so lables don't bother suing because it costs too much for them and they are aware that the person who made it probably can't afford it anyway.

Music is a bit more serious though, although the legal status with NG is the same to my knowledge, Instead of making a flash and putting music in, you're claiming the music to be your own.

When you submit music to the NG audio portal there is a little line that says 'You are stating that it is your own origional work'. If you submit something that is either not your work at all, even if it is only part of it, you are in breach of that agreement.

It's less a matter of the legal side, and more so the terms and conditions of the Newgrounds AP.

Well, you can always renew a copyright. Michael Jackson owns all of Elvis' songs.

I have a question about whether I am allowed to use a certain piece of software.

This software, called eJay, gives you loops and allows you to arrange them to create your own music. Am I allowed to submit these?

Thanks!

Yeah, I clear the pending list every 1-2 days, and am generally surprised at the number of people that submit songs by other artists... even chart songs, on occasion. Bear in mind when you upload that an audio ban lasts a looooooong time (technically, forever), and make sure you read the rules on the SUBMIT page

I hate to say it, but I'm terrified to upload any of the audio recordings I made in which I included backgrond music from the game or show I'm impersonating because I'm afraid that I'll get banned for having pre-made music in an audio, even though the focus is one my line recording.

You have every right to fear ban in case you include samples that are not your own/you have the permission to use.
However, if you´re all clear, then there´s absolutley nothing to worry about.

Do you even own it?If you did there would be a huge print on the box saying "XXXX ROYALTY FREE SAMPLES"....The samples themself are royalty free if you acquired a license for the host program.Which means you can use them...however EJAY is a free noobstamp in the forhead by most people i believe :P

I think i speak for the majority here when i say this....

Fuck covers
Fuck sampling someone elses music
Fuck infringeing copyrights.....

If in don't simply don't do it.

DO make ORIGINAL music, it's more rewarding, you'll get more recognition, even if your first few songs aren't much better than a steaming turd, you'll feel better for it anyways.

Huzzah!! pitters I was starting to wonder what the fuck had happened to you. Where've you been?

Anyway, may I just say that covers and sampling are certainly not excluded from 'Original music' by default, and if done profoundly are certainly equal in artisticity. The more untouchable the original, the more rewarding it is when you succeed in making a version that can completely co-exist.

Sure history shows that it mostly turns out horrendous - All Saints' Under The Bridge comes to mind - but exactly the same can be said about newly written stuff. People who actually appreciate music always have to be stirring in a bowl of shit to find something decent.

On recognition, I'll just say that my few video game covers are generally my most downloaded tracks, second only to the one that has Hitler in the title. If you want to be successful, bad taste is the way to go.

Where exactly did this reply become such a pointless rant?

Bullshit.

It's one thing to enforce the "dont use anything that doesn't belong to you so we dont get sued" rule, but it's another to assume that creating softcore porn techno is the only morally correct style of music. It's actually a lot more limiting then you might think.

This place may seriously limit the type of music that can be added, but that doesn't mean the only genuine music is said porn techno.

What the fuck did that have anything to do with what he said?

I have to agree with him that using other people's music in your own is a simple lack of talent. Sampling DOES have its place, but under very different circumstances.

haha my my erkie, something clearly got you by the balls mate. When have a i ever made anything that remotely resembles said softcore porn techno? I can't fucking stand that shite. Maybe you forgot who made the comment, i don't know but go listen to some of my music, i think you'll find some wonderfully original tunes for you to muse over.

i never stated that there is one set way to make music, i merely stated my opinion with regards to sampling etc. I just think it's a pointless exercise, if you're gonna sample something, make it really fucking cool what you're sampling, or weird. better still, gonna remix a tune? Build it from scratch and dramatically alter it. Originality will always win out as you must understand, yes pandering to an audience,as certain types on here do, will gain you popularity, but i'd much rather be respected by a few who appreiciate the time effort and quality of whatever i've made, than a bunch of sheep who wouldn't know a good tune if it bit em on the arse.

Great deduction!

Only did his paraphrase make that distinction.

Fuck covers

Leaves people to think, their thoughts are finished with

DO make ORIGINAL music

Which causes the mind to go to Techno, no? It didn't for you? You had to think about it? Techno is a purely clean form while also being completely unoriginal, of course, that's just a general comment.

So this is saying that if I re-constructed a song by someone else on FL or something, then I made it into a remix, I would be able to submit my remix to the AP?

Is this correct?

Yes, as long as you fairly credited the original author of the song, and stated it was a remix.

If you remix something or do a cover, you own the copywrite to THAT piece of work, but not exclusive to any melodic and/or rythms used.

Pretty much, it's Newgrounds, about 80% of the stuff on this site is illegal in some ways, but no one cares, it's all about personal intertainment, no one's going and selling thier stuff on itunes or trackitdown, so just relax, the screning is quite slack.

Just make music, upload it if you contributed and didn't just totally rip it off "Like my rework of the main theme of Chrono Trigger where I took the midi and reworked all of the sounds as a test".

And hey, if they ban you from uploading , boo hoo, it's only Newgrounds, if you were really serious about it than you wouldn't be uploading rip offs or covers or remixes :)

It's all just fun and games here.
