    Same here. Hello and welcome.
    Somehow the initial post got missed. Sorry for that. Sometimes happens.

    That's a theme that is spreading like a disease in western society unfortunately.

    As I said in my previous reply, to the best of my knowledge it hasn't happened. But then again I'm not omnipresent. grin

    Thanks for your reply. I hail from the States (USA) which is a society that is litigiously entitled; where getting sued simply for existing as a Human being is a way of life here. So I want to do everything possible to avoid having lawyers crawling up my backside. But I suppose it's about $$$$$ and if these sounds are used on gratis presentations then that's a different matter. It's good to know that so far there has been no such precedent.

    Hi Nick

    It's unfortunate that I'm the only person to reply (latently) to your introduction.
    Anyway, welcome to the community! smile

    Thank you for the links, I'll check out the remix comps tomorrow when i've got a bit more time to browse. Also, very nice descriptive personal story on your profile, that's worth commemorating.

    Cheers

    I don't know of that happening before, not to my knowledge.

    It's a difficult question really, because it wouldn't be your fault (however much the initiator of the claim may insist) - it would virtually be the fault of the uploader, however, because all of the sounds coming into the Freesound database are moderated before being publicised, then technically that makes FS liable for this case scenario.

    That is exactly why there was talk of switching to an "approve now - moderate later" scheme to repeal any liability for sounds in the database that may be subject to problems like you described.

    Right now, there's no guarantee that the sounds you have downloaded are truly original and copyright free - but, the moderators do their very best in seizing potential copyrighted material (it's easy to spot in most cases).

    Ideally I would have liked to reassure you that 100% of sounds are safe to use on this site, yet I cannot guarantee that. You should still be weary and cautious of what you are using, just like if you take an image from Flickr under Creative Commons, there's a very slight chance that won't be safe to use also.

    In the unlikely event this does happen to you, I urge you to contact site admin straight away.

    In your case, attribution using a method of redirection in an accessible place would suffice.
    According to creative commons, if you state the author/title and produce a link to the source somewhere in conjunction to the media you are presenting, that is okay. But according to them you should also state the license type (but that isn't absolutely necessary in my view)

    This is an ideal attribution:


    "audio file name [link]" by username [link] is licensed under CC BY 2.0

    Source

    The order for the above credit string can be different, doesn't matter really as long as you state the author name/filename and provide a link you'll be fine. Check out the link I provided above named "source" for broader information on the topic from Creative Commons.

    Hi there djnicke

    Yes, technically any recording you make within your back yard is rendered your own property upon capture. This excludes re-recordings of copyrighted music or sound effects protected by 'mechanical rights'.

    The sound recording field is wrought with grey areas, the law is quite vague like stealing oranges from your own garden. Your local or national legislation will apply for audio surveillance conduct. I would advise that if the conversation of your neighbours is distant and hardly discernible, then this would be fine; it could pass as background ambience. If you record them say, 2 meters away over the fence and their voices are clearly discernible, this would need permission (if you intend on distributing the recording) to stay within the law. I'm pretty sure the regulations for audio and video are the similar with respect to capturing 'sensitive' recordings which are intended for subsequent distribution to the public. If you are worried you can get the subject(s) to sign a release form to cover your back.

    Here is an example of a legal release:

    Sound And Photographs Release Form

    As for the dog and the car, those are absolutely fine to record and distribute, copyrights don't apply to animal calls. No worries there, capture to your heart's contempt.

    Hope this helped

    If I were a sexy female I’d do this for you, but unfortunately I’m an unsexy beardy man.

    In lieu of a better suggestion, maybe you could put one of epanody’s sounds into a ‘beat slicer’ type program/plugin so you can trigger each word rhythmically? Chopping up things that aren’t beats with beat slicers can be a fun thing to do generally.

    Hi, I'm new here

    I need some vocals to my songs. Man or woman, girl or boy, doesn't matter.

    I need some people to say or shout:

    1) "Bitterer's gonna rock the place!"
    2) "Come on people, let's rock this place!"
    3) "Cause we are one soul and one heart!"
    4) "Turn up the bass!"
    5) "Clap your hands!"
    6) "Everybody hands up!"
    7) "Make it loud!"

    (it's English language)

    If someone will help, I will appreciate it. It will be very nice if I will find a person who will help me. Thanks smile

    How am I continuing to spam?! If that is how every one is going to be, then this forum is closed and I'm not posting another thing! Have nice day! If you change your mind, I'm still here!

    this is pretty close, but this exact phrase said in a very rhythmical manner is what i'm after.
