    I would seek legal advice from an attorney that specialises in music law.

    You should be credited as a writer, at the very least and would likely receive residual royalties.
    It might not be be much but for instance if this track is licensed for a car commercial we're talking big $ and you'd be entitled to a share of that. The fact that they haven't sought permission will actually put you in a better position to negotiate a bigger share of the writers royalties too.

    Hi,
    I had a similar thing happen. I got in contact with the record label's legal department. In my case Relapse Records took it very seriously and an amicable agreement was reached quickly. You are obviously concerned enough to bring it up, but if you aren't worried enough to get an actual lawyer, at least contact the label. Don't bother with the artist, they might not know or care, but the label will want to avoid the embarrassment of a lawsuit.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for all the help, I have decided to pursue this. I used the attribution licence and it hasn't been adhered to which is just not right. If the Creative Commons is going to work then it should be respected and the licences upheld. I'll let you know of the outcome and hopefully this kind of thing can be avoided or delt with in the proper manor next time. If I'd wanted to just give my samples away without credit I'd of used the 'zero' licence.

    i listened to it again and the voice in the song sounds a little different, i know they can add effects to it and change the pitch etc, but i cant imagine how they could change your voice like that, its possible that they listened to your sample then re-recorded it themselves saying the same thing. what does it mean btw translated to english
