I notice every once in a while unwatermarked AJ songs placed on VH projects. I usually notify the AJ authors, but since it is actually not their fault…
...I’d like this to be a call to wake up VideoHive reviewers: VH reviewers, this does not help protect our music. We’d appreciate you paying attention to this when reviewing.
p.s. Support ticket submitted.
Wow, Luca!! Beautiful!! (a manly beautiful, of course…)
I believe it would be against the rules if you are an exclusive author. Though you could open a non-exclusive account and put them there.

(I ended up with the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro’s).
“Can I use an AJ track in a stand-alone music track? What about sound effects? You may not use music in stand-alone music tracks, but you could use sound effects in a music track. Example: You can’t add lyrics to an audio track and sell it on iTunes”Yes, it’s right, because AJ license really don’t allows to use a track as a song.. But author can give this permission, i believe..
Sorry, I think that is only for non-exclusive accounts. If you give permission and sell the song outside of AudioJungle, that’s not exclusive then, is it? Are these songs on your exclusive account? Perhaps the thing to do, if you start seeing royalties on those songs, is to move them to your non-exclusive account. Is there a staff member that can clear this up? I’m especially interested because someone just this last week asked if they could add vocals to one of my songs and I told them no.
Isn’t it against AJ policy to let others add vocals to AJ tracks?Why not? I think, the song with vocals and just a track – these are totally different objects..
Sorry, Alexander. They are not totally different objects at all (same music). And, after looking further into it, AJ does not allow this.
From the License FAQ’s page (here):
“Can I use an AJ track in a stand-alone music track? What about sound effects?
You may not use music in stand-alone music tracks, but you could use sound effects in a music track.

I’m afraid to say if you start earning royalties from her songs, I think you have to take these off AudioJungle. Or you could get her to get rid of them altogether and keep them on AJ, I think. Am I wrong? I’m always willing to be wrong if I’m missing something!
Tracks are still on AJ..Also were you compensated well enough for these songs? or did she just buy a standard license of AJ, sang over those and then claimed the whole production?
They paid some extra money for me..

Add the songs she used to AdRev! That’ll get her attention.
