This guy uploads a lot of songs that he does not own. The best part is that he admits it :P
http://ididntmakethissong.newgrounds.com/
A lot of other songs that are copyrighted:

(yup the guy who made classics like Beginning of Time and Electrodynamix is guilty of adding vocals from Katy Perry - Hot and Cold)

according to the author, he doesn't own this song

a skrillex mix.

made using garage band. i think the clips he used are copyrighted

a bunch of copyrighted songs put into one

OMG THIS MURDERED MY EARS
http://advystyles.newgrounds.com/
This guy shows almost no effort into his songs. Other than his reflexes. But as he says, he only makes his horrible quality songs for fun. Besides, the writer of one of the songs he did a how-to song of favorited one of his how-to songs.

Waterflame's Game Grumps tracks were done with permission of and the Game Grumps also approve these tracks.
(I personally have no clue why he would upload his Game Grumps tracks on Newgrounds.)

Stolen track from racing game Asphalt 8. I can tell from a mile away.

The title IS indeed Holdin' On (Skrillex and Nero Remix) by MONSTA.

Well, let's just say he'll be holdin' on to his ban for a month.

This is one of the few occasions in the Audio Portal where it seems like someone was trying to steal something. I've taken care of it, and browsed through the rest of the profile, only to find more unoriginal works and copyrighted audio. Good find.

At 3/2/15 08:32 PM, tox wrote: and how does everyone on here look for audio.. that is stolen..

whats the cue, whats the thing that tips you off, what is the catch

Since most people here steal audio without knowing it's against the rules, the first thing that tips me off is vague author's comments. Then I use a mixture of Google, audio recognition software and asking for second opinions until I can find evidence that the track isn't original.

I've unpublished the first two. As usual, I'm not giving him the benefit of the doubt for the third so I've unpublished that too. Shazam and SoundHound brought up nothing, but given that it's fairly high-quality and is posted on an account where the other two tracks are blatantly stolen, coupled with very vague author's comments, it's safe to assume it's also stolen.

A song "remixing" some of the music of DJVI, dj-Nate, and Step. It was even featured at the bottom bar. Not only that, this is the second 'remix' that he's uploaded after putting up another one that was already reported and removed.

Ah, that moment when you ban people who steal your own music.

Took care of them all except the Zelda one. Zelda games don't have any English speech in them and given that he has a whole profile full of voice demos I don't think he's stealing anything. If anyone finds evidence against that then let me know.

I don't usually unpublish ear-piercing stuff but I'll make an exception for this, since it really sounds awful and his profile is full of other spam, copyrighted audio, duplo music, the works.

Yeah I don't think it qualifies as legitimate. Just spammy and awful voice over other people's music. There was only one track of his which he claims to be legitimate. I removed it anyway due to finding no evidence on his other social profiles that it's his, and the fact that he says he's new to making music (it was a fairly high-quality track). I offered him the possibility of sending me evidence that he made that track, in which case i'll re-publish it. Good finds!

Thanks! Here's another chunk of it.

As I said before, the evidence of stolen content in my list should be in the title or description of the upload. A lot of these uploaders, however, speak Spanish. If none of the audio moderators know Spanish well, then you can run the descriptions through Google Translate if you want definite proof. You'll find that all of the ones I posted here incriminate themselves just as much as the English-speaking ones ("I did not make this song," "All credit goes to [artist]," etc).

I really don't want to report this. I love this song although i never saw Star Wars. I am not sure if the vocals are taken from Star Wars. Also, I am a huge fan of this artist. He is somewhat of a familiar face on this thread.

Uses vocals from Skrillex - Make it Bun Dem. Really good song though.

Seems like it's this one. It was removed because it broke the rules. We don't allow people to post music they didn't make over here.

Since there will be a revamp of the audio submission form soon, in my opinion (and in the opinion of other moderators too), it does more harm than good to remove pages like that which had a lot of traffic just because of a few copyrighted samples. We generally let it slide when the track in question already garnered a lot of views, especially when the track's artist is still active around here on Newgrounds, since after the revamp it shouldn't be an issue anymore.

There are tunes signed from metalheadz and 31 recordings in there. It's a live DJ mix that I did basically. All tunes legit bought, tracklist will be up soon (If this kinda stuff is permit would be good to get some clarification on that!), but the mixtape is not available for download.

I'm not signed to metalheadz lol :P

Another only-for-GMD-use song

Stolen per description

Stolen from "Sunshine" band. Funny thing is that the uploader even tried to claim ownership of song.

Stolen from F-777

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

Uploaded by the same user who uploaded ID 613202, which is same stolen music

...per title

Also per title

Probably stolen from Skrillex

...and another only-for-GMD-use song. Description is "I uploaded this song so I can play it on Geometry Dash"

Stolen from Pegboard Nerds per title. The same stolen music with a different ID was also reported earlier by someone else.

Same as ID 613193. Uploader attempted to claim ownership.

Probably from The Living Tombstone (they create FNAF songs). Also per description, and a only-for-GMD-use song.

Same as ID 613202 and 613198. Uploaders really love duplicating uploads to evade deletions.

...per title.

TITLE

Pretty funny how people link to the original audios. Also, only-for-GMD-use song.

Another self-speaking submission per title.

Possible only-for-GMD-use song.
