You don’t need to worry about the other libraries – the only thing that appears on a user’s YouTube account is: ‘Third Party Match detected. Name of track – Authour. Administered by AdRev’.

So, what happens with a track you changed the name of? Some clients may have bought it as a different name than the new name that you now provide to AdRev. Does this present a problem?

I’m sorry. But this isn’t very frustrating to me… it’s just laughable. Professionals aren’t going to go to this guy.

“You pprrrroooobbbbably have heard my music…”

::plays music::

...Um, nope!

:D

That was my initial reaction a few years ago when first I heard about him. He’s been on the circuit for quite a while and back then he was always teetering around the second page of results. Unfortunately I’ve since discovered professionals DO use him..a lot. Maybe for arbitrary background music in movies/tv (such as playing discreetly on a fuzzy old radio, for example), but this guy and his company are becoming a very dominant force. I’ve lost count of how many YouTube videos I’ve heard his music appear on and is regularly promoted on YouTube (by vloggers, tutorial channels, etc) as the de facto standard for easily monetized, YouTube ‘friendly’ music. Remember, we’re musicians, so we have a discerning ear, whereas, sadly the vast majority of buyers don’t.

In just a couple of years, he’s made it to TOP result for the strongest search keywording in our industry. And no doubt Google/YouTube will love him and his company, simply based on the fact that users can now simply monetize their videos, by crediting him and stating Creative Commons material as the third party content. Very little administration for all concerned, and Google easily get their advertising revenue.

So as much as it’s pretty laughable on first impressions, sites like these are becoming a real threat to our industry, like it or not.

Interesting info. I actually came back to the forum post just now to apologize for my somewhat rude remarks. ;)

I hear you, Matt. Still, I think we are appealing to a slightly different crowd than he is for the most part. As always, thanks for speaking up for us and continuously informing us. You’re a great advocate and educator for AudioJungle authors.

..something is terribly wrong in the last two weeks,never been this slow.
And even more frustratingly, a kickstarter documentary is due to be released, celebrating the guy at the top of search (I’m sure most of you have heard of him), who has basically hijacked the term ‘royalty free music’ for himself (even though, technically he provides ‘free music’). I suspect we’re loosing business to this ‘composer’ and even more now since Google are giving him more strength in search.. Outraged!

I’m sorry. But this isn’t very frustrating to me… it’s just laughable. Professionals aren’t going to go to this guy.

By the way, Envato devs, not sure if it’s just me but there’s something on that page that is causing Chrome 38.0.2125.104 (on a Mac using Mavericks) to freeze meaning I can’t vote.

Mine is freezing too. Can’t vote. :/

At least on AudioJungle. I saw a couple of similar issues on other marketplaces. Man, I feel like I just keep calling out bugs, but is anyone else seeing this?

Search “Inspiration” and you’ll see in the #1 spot Soundaround’s top seller. There, I see it has 1955 sales. Click on the song’s link to go to its page and you’ll see it has sold 1965 times. This is happening all around the marketplace I’m noticing. Maybe related to the new faceted search and getting it rolled out? Staff, any help on this?

I wish I had a song that sold 7 times within 14 hours, and if it kept selling I wouldn’t care if it was trending or not.

Sorry if I sounded ungrateful. I am grateful!

I’m just trying to understand the new trending feature and some of you have been pretty helpful, so thanks to those who have contributed to the conversation with helpful information.

Trending is still not very clear and wouldn’t mind a dev or some staff weigh in on some of the questions and confusion posed: like, when do the trending banners appear? Is it immediate or does it only update at the same time other details update, like sales on top author list or new author badges? (...which is midnight in Melbourne… Oooo! “Midnight in Melbourne” would be a great song name…. Hmmm….)

Its confusing for sure because i saw some authors embeding the “blue flash” in to their item thumbnails … so maybe some of you saw this “flaged” items with 2 sales :( I did not reported it because its just sad and pathetic :( :(
Are you serious about this?

Yeah… I’ve seen him too…
