Stolen per author comments. Recorded off youtube.
You need to go a bit careful with these youtube ones!

Sampling youtube is actually legit, check out their licenses, they have different licenses per video, they also use the CC license which permits re-use, modification and such, provided they've been credited.

I haven't researched this video, but can everyone be a little more vigilant regarding this clean up.

We don't want to remove legitimate music due to someone not researching just that little bit more.

Thanks

He didn't sample anything, he literally just ripped a song off youtube and posted it on NG. I.E. Just uploaded someone elses work.

Ha! I reviewed the As I Am Midi rip saying midi rips don't belong on the audio portal before I was an audio mod... And here I am years later removing it.

third time today, wow

As much as I enjoy some of these, sampling just isn't allowed at all is it? Wasn't there a rule at some point that it was ok as long as it sampled less than 10% of the original?

If the samples sources aren't copyrighted, you can use as much as you want.

However, if the sources are copyrightd (as all of the above sources are), then you are allowed to use 0% of it.

Good finds. All removed.

per author's comments in his profile, under his picture:

"Getting ready to animate a David Benoit music video for Charlie Brown. The video is called Linus & Lucy. It is the reprise from the 1989 Happy Anniversary, Charlie Brown! CD. The song is on MP3. It is about 3:04 seconds, at least."

This identifies it as possibly stolen from David Benoit, a jazz musician. The author comments in the submission are an ad. He didn't animate anything. Both of his flash submissions were stolen. Feel free to ban him fer a bit, seeing as he's running dirty, yo. ;)

Uh...I believe this song is using copyrighted material. The description made it seem like it was Sonny Moore's track, and the quality is suspiciously high for an un-scouted artist.
