    I'm going to take a stab at the legality discussion with a strong caveat that I'm not a lawyer, but I am an artist and the idea of appropriation in the digital age is something I think about a lot.

    I guess it would be good to begin with the intent of copyrighting a synth sample. I would imagine the reason a company would do it is not to prevent individuals from using it in a song or other content, but to prevent someone from taking that exact sound, implementing it in a device or software of their own, and then selling it as a product. Also the idea that distributing the sample might devalue their own product by hurting the demand for the sound that their product offers.

    So in the real world, if you used a copyrighted synth sample in your project, no one is going to take any action, because it would be impossible to police, and it's not the intent of the law. So the ethics of recording and uploading a synth sample, and even downloading and using it for the individual is a moot point. Don't worry about it, nobody is going to be knocking on your door

    But, what copyright does is reserve the right of the owner to litigate. So even though they might not come after you as an individual for using the sample in a soundtrack or song (because it would be very difficult to isolate and prove the sound is actually theirs, especially if it's been edited and mixed, and even harder to prove you didn't pay for it), it would be much easier for them to come after a website that was hosting the sample in it's pure and unadulterated form, because the website would be a clear and easy target.

    So it's not a question of will this directly effect you as an individual, but would it jeopardize the website. So that is why you wouldn't want to upload certain content.

    I tried that before, and I'll try it again. In fact I've just tested it on a track's info. I will re-post here whether it worked or not.

    What is disappointing is that my (at least 2) private emails about this were not responded to, but if a criticism is posted here, publicly, it always gets a response.

    @ guyburns

    Different things on Freesound are stored in different servers. Sometimes it can take over 24h for all pages to sync up.
    If the problem is still there after a few days, then try using the contact form at the bottom of the page on the help tab to report that problem.

    @ Maurice_J_K

    It is possible to change the name of a sound after you have uploaded it.
    Once you go on to the page for editing the sound information, please note this is divided into sections with a 'submit' button at the end of each section.
    This means 2 things:
    1) When you press a submit button, you are only actually submitting the changes in that section. So make sure you press the button for the section where you made changes. Otherwise your changes will be lost.
    2) If you need to make changes to more than one section, you need to submit these separately.

    Note: this is something the Admins are looking at improving, as it has often caused confusion and mistakes (even the more experience uploaders sometimes still make a mistake because of this). But for the moment, that is how it is and how it works.

    I have tried to change file names on many different occasions and it never worked.
    I DMd the moderators a few times about it. No reply.

    Something's not working properly with name changes:

    1. https://freesound.org/people/guyburns/sounds/405239/ says "Small Town #1" – the new name.

    2. https://freesound.org/people/guyburns/ says "Hamilton #1" – the old name.

    So it looks like file names on my home page are not being updated.

    Hi,
    Yes there is a delay between the moment you change the sound and the moment when you'll see it updated in the sound page. If you see it correct in the edit sound page, you'll eventually see it updated in the sound page as well. It can take up to an hour.

    Cheers

    I'd like to change the name of one of my sounds. I have tried the "Edit Sound Information" button, and it does allow me to change the name, but when I press "Submit", the name is not altered.

    Is there a delay before changes appear – or can the name of a sound not be altered?
