Thank you guys.
Congratulations! Great job!
200 sales! 155 of them from November 2013 to February 2014
2 sales, not bad
It’s just awful! Was a normal search engine, sales began to grow. There was all clear. Priority obtained successful new tracks. Now what? Some old tracks with a few sales now above the rest. My new successful track goes down greatly. Today I do not have sales, although the old search yesterday was all good. There is no logic at all.
Nice track. Congratulations!
Gareth, I think you’re getting a bit off topic. We’re not talking about risers, or something that is just a few seconds here or there. We’re talking about a main melodic/harmonic idea that continues throughout the whole track, in which the “composer” doesn’t even add anything creatively to it, but just uses it “out of the box”, with no substantial changes or parts added on top. I mean there were too different composers here with two different songs but both using the same loop, and both “songs” were nearly identical (one added just a bit more than the other). In the license agreement of all these samples, they clearly state that loops should not be used in this way for commercial purposes. If I were a customer, I’d be very confused by this and wonder why two different authors had essentially the same song! Anyways, I think the original point wasn’t to call out what is “art” and what isn’t, so much as it was to point out that it’s pretty sleazy to use loops the way some of these people do and then turn around and call that track your own, when it is 95% someone else’s work. Some of these examples are bordering on copyright infringement and fraud. In the end, the two items in question were removed because they violated Envato’s AND Big Fish Audio’s terms. And I guess if they violated their terms, there was probably something WRONG with what they did.
