    Stealing my sounds


    just a heads up that I shared a sound in good faith 11 years ago, and twice, I've had copyright strikes from professional recordings who used the sound. One was a fairly well-know band, and I was able to work it out directly with the band themselves. I just disputed my second strike, but be careful giving away your stuff here, and then trying to use it on youtube later.

    ^ Tale as old as time. *Sony tells Sam Raimi he can't make Spider-Man 4 because The Lizard is too campy- reboots franchise with The Lizard as the villain.*

    My advice is to keep the sounds you're "precious" about to yourself, and share the sounds you think can be harvested and faux copyrighted.

    It's rough but we live in a world where a literal synth noise can create complaints about copyright infringement. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-music-katy-perry-lawsuit-idCAKCN2L72E8

    The key is to keep creating no matter what. Cheers.

    "The key is to keep creating no matter what."

    Indeed. The ability to do this trumps all the plagiarists and thieves. They may rip something off, or steal something, but we can keep making them by the thousands, and we can make them free so that the others will almost never be able to sell them. It will take them too much time and energy to do anything to counter this, so only the most industrious of them will ever manage it. By the time they've done that, they will have developed a tool or technique that's potent enough to be useful on its own without any plagiarism. With any luck, that experience will also have matured them as people, and they will start creating more and consuming less.

    Either they will become industrious creatives like us or they will condemn themselves to sit on the sidelines once again. Whatever happens, none of it can touch the beauty or majesty of your work.

    How do you know you're getting old? When you don't have time for it.
