This has been brought up before, according to Tom. The problem with that is, not only are IPs a lot of the times flexible, changing between sessions occasionally, but with some ISPs, you may ban that person one day, but the next you're banning someone else on that IP and the GD thief has been doled out another for their session. They can also go to a coffee shop or a friend's house and get around an IP ban, and believe me, some of these idiots are that determined. It's better for the end-user if we just permaban their accounts and keep an eye out, but to do that, we need a hand from the userbase.
For those of you who keep up with this thread, I'll be coming out with a guide for how I identify stolen audio, which I'll later put out as a podcast-y thing for those who don't like reading. It should help get the thing down to a science.

My pleasure. Certainly a job, but I enjoy it. Headed home tomorrow. 9 hour drive. I've written out that comprehensive guide to flagging rule-breaking audio. Just need to proof read it, edit, record, w/e. I mean, because who doesn't love whistle points from a good, accurate flag? End result, everyone benefits.
In particular, the unscouted section is a hotspot for thefts. New accs with junk descrips, no credentials/links, junk tags, suspiciously good content. You name it. It's been a busy day here and I've still probably gone through 100 or more submissions that were stolen. Yesterday, I stumbled upon some guy from 2005-2006 that had stolen about 9 tracks from the Rurouni Kenshin OST and gotten away with it for quite some time by passing it off as his own. 'Course, it was harder to find OST mp3s back then. Others I've seen in the past couple days may upload the same song twice with different junk and that tips me off.

Compare these. Who stole it from who?? The one on NG has been here way longer, but Dimrain47 also has uploaded songs on NG and that makes me trust him a bit... Some help would be nice.
I think the Shinrog is original. If you google "Infertehno", you get more results than "Eternal Rave". That also explains why Dimrain47 didn't post that song on NG.

Thank you! This made my day! All clean now. Still plenty more to be found, of course. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! All clean. And thanks @Exedor sliding in as well, just as I'm nodding off for the night. Unscouted section might have a few you could catch in there still. I haven't had as much time to watch it today, but I've removed several in the past couple hours.

Ps, you have a triple-post of unrelated images here. If you have an image to post, please make sure it's related to the topic.
Going through the rest of the IDs now. If possible, next time make sure to separate the songs from any text or they'll come out as links and not embeds. Notice how the ones with text beside them are links and the ones separate are embeds. Thanks!
Also, welcome to NG. Appreciate the helping hand :)

Seems like that one's been dealt with. I got you back on this.
I'm going from bottom to top. See you in the middle :P

Looks all clean from here. There were a few legitimate submissions reported, so be careful.

All clean except this post I'm replying here. If someone sees this and has a bit of spare time while I function in a manner most human and do person things for a bit. Raging migraine. Need coffee. Maybe some good ganja too.
mostly kidding, but srs, taking a break
@MonsterboyGD You're doing a pretty good job coming up with stolen content, but watch for stuff that might be legitimate. Also, I notice you're not flagging any of these as you go through the list. What a waste! You'd be half-way to a silver whistle by now, I think, had you flagged all these. Additionally, I found a ton of other stolen audio on some of the submitting accounts, so keep an eye out for that, and start flagging things (correctly)! It's faster for me to go through a flag than a text post, as I immediately know what to look for and why.
Other users, I finally finished that guide on flagging stolen audio. Currently, it's in my sig. Check it. If you find it helpful, share it around. We could use more users like you to help clean out this stolen crap.
@Exedor, @LexaHergon, @NekoMika, @B16, if any of you has time in the next 1-3 hours, I'll be resting my mind a bit. If not, I'll handle those submissions. Think I may go make that podcast in the meantime.

Goddamn monsterboy just laid a blitzkrieg of stolen audio all at once.
I'll settle for a small list this time.

And finally some Tristam:
Response to Audio Portal Cleanup 2016-12-22 15:33:52
This one isn't stolen, it just rips most of the song:
This one is also a mash-up, which I know isn't allowed either:
This one doesn't say the song name. I looked up the tags and apparently the song is a collaboration between Skrillex and Daft Punk called Conte. People also think it's a remix. This is the most info I can provide that the song is not theirs:
