I honestly considered reporting it for making my ears bleed, then I realized it's stolen from Skrillex...

This one's stolen. You'll know it when you hear it.

This one might be stolen, based on that first one being stolen.

Seems like someone else already took down a chunk of that list. I finished it off. Good job as always! On another note, these lists are making me more accustomed to Skrillex, OMFG, Virtual Riot, Monstercat, Pegobard Nerds, Knife Party and Cash Cash music. I'm even learning a bit of Spanish along the way.

Song is not wrong, what's wrong is the title and description. Don't forget the tags, too. EDIT: Icon is also inappropiate

I can't change the title, description, or icon. I can change the tags. However, I agree that it is inappropriate so I just went ahead and removed it, banning him for a week for posting spam.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/613193
Probably stolen from Skrillex

Shazam helped with this one. His whole profile indeed contained stolen music.

Can confirm. Some Hatsune Miku thing. He also had a Kirby boss battle theme uploaded too.

I think this is a non-legit remix, can anyone confirm?

Took me a while but I got some help from a friend of mine who played Wind Waker. Seems like a direct rip from the original soundtrack. Reminds me, I have the HD version on the Wii U and I need to get around to playing it!

I've contacted Ahrix through his Facebook page, asking him to verify if it's fake or not. We'll see how that goes. In the case that I get no response, I'll PM that Newgrounds account asking for proof that he's the original owner of that music he posted. If he's unable to provide proof within a week, then I'll ban the account and remove the track... or maybe this would warrant account deletion, @BrenTheMan ?

Multiple "stolen" songs??? Do you know what a cover version is?? it's recreating the original either as close to or using a different style.

I notice two of my cover songs have been removed. However, I would like to point out that as far as I am aware, the stacking girl video on youtube has no audio copyright in place. This is where I took my sample from, and NOT from the original song!

Sorry, I mixed you up with another guy. My main source of information is Geometry dash, and people sometimes switch song without updating the song link. What I heard (and therefore believed was from your channel) was a crappy skrillex remix. That I didn't double check is my fault; I was lazy.

That's Deadlocked by F-777. PoProbably reuploaded as a new song to go around the block in Geometry dash. (The game creator blocked it because he wwants to use it for an official level.)

Oh, and sorry for my Selfrude--Replystorm; I'll try to use the edit function more often in the future.

Message part 2: electric boogaloo

Is there a way to ban songs "extra hard"? I've noticed that the banned songs are still downloadable in Geometry Dash. That kinda ruins the point a bit; if there are no consequences, why should they stop?

If a user is not scouted, then the song shouldn't be downloadable by Geometry Dash. Try it - go to the unscouted section of the Audio Portal and try downloading something. It won't let you. If we ban someone who happens to be scouted (which is unlikely since if they're posting rule-breaking submissions then they're probably not scouted in the first place), then it automatically unscouts them.

Keep in mind, however, that with the way Geometry Dash works, all you need to do is download a song once in-game. For instance, let's say a custom GD level uses Song X. You download Song X through the game and play the level. Later on, we find out that Song X breaks the rules, so we unpublish it and ban the uploader. You've already downloaded Song X to your device, so you can continue replaying the level with Song X playing just fine, but new users who hadn't downloaded Song X before it was taken down shouldn't be able to download it. I think that's how it works.

Yeah it isn't the same guy. This is the second time someone on here stole that very track. Plus, the person who uploaded it admitted that it isn't his in a response to a review he got, and that he (surprise surprise) only uploaded it to use in Geometry Dash.

I gave a quick listen to all of his uploads, and unless you already deleted some of them, I don't actually see anything that I would have reported. I guess that's an oopsie on my part. Not sure what I heard that made me want to put him on my wall of shame.

I went ahead and deleted the ones which broke the rules, yeah. I just assumed that if you list his whole account in your post then every submission in his account is illegitimate, and I was having trouble finding anything that broke the rules in most of his uploads. Anyway, I think his account is clean now!
