my conclusion; SEF is sick
voodoo will help maybe.
I will put my energy only in creating beautiful sound now.
SEF will smile now.
1] NO INDIRECT DOWNLOAD LINK; Link the people directly to my sound
Does re-hosting of YouTube "horror ambience" videos count as an "indirect link" ?. e.g. ...
WARNING: the "clip.dj" rehosting website has pop-up & pop-under adverts, and god knows what other nastiness, I suggest using a sandbox if you visit it to avoid possible malware infection.
Sounds can be played on and downloaded from YouTube rehosting sites without the downloader getting a chance to see any attribution on the original YouTube video.
It is a bit awkward that WE USERS (klankbeeld, timbre, juskiddink, myself...) and a few moderators must take some steps, get our hands dirty, in order to protect our work. Instead of focusing our positiv energy in creating good sounds.
I think that Freesound. org is not that little site these days, that could be bullied by every mischief juvenile.
There are previous instances of Freesound intervention on illeal use of samples from Freesound.
I also agree that our energy is best spent on creative aspects and from my perspective SEF had been left alone - until a few days ago when he decided to show up again and spit on our face.
Saddly, he is not a juvenile. But on the plus side that means he is fully accountable for his actions.
He thinks he is building a name for himself.
Lets see how that backfires when potential employers search him up online and find his dirty trail of copyright infractions. Put that on you CV, SEF.
