I use samples from cd's and sound websites that say I can share samples under a creative commons liscense.Samples from sites like Freesound.org and similar sites with royalty-free samples are generally fine. If the original source is a copyrighted sample, it's still, well copyrighted. Just use common sense when browsing and downloading samples. If you are worrying about whether sample might be copyrighted, just avoid using it and everybody will be happy happy
Would I get banned if people believe that the free samples I use off of sound websites probably stolen or cutted from some copyrighted source?
I have no idea what those two last lines were about. Sorry. I don't understand why you worry since you're approved long ago anyway.
I got royalty-free samples a few years ago. Free download and everything. But not long after, when I went back to get more, they were not royalty-free. What does that mean about my legal use of them?
And I have a question about MIDIs, what is considered a rip, and copyright about the MIDI. Let's say I have some MIDIs of some VG songs, and particular instruments are playing in multiple channels, meaning there are multiple note tracks for each of the instruments. Now, what if I want to take only a part of each and put them together with completely different instruments? Is this a rip? I was reading about the sheet music copyright and this has me all confused. The picture below perhaps explains what I mean about the notes. My latest song, Galloper, was made this way, by method of MIDI splicing. It sounds like neither of the original melodies. Is this wrong?
