Congrats on the show, and good to hear your doing this full time. Nothing better than doing something you love and making a living from it.

A obvious change was made that almost all weight for search rankings is on the title, hence why everyone has the same exact song title, and single keyword names.

Pretty ridiculous and comical. (Yes, I’ve done it too.) This really should be addressed because it should be a balance of description/tag and sales that matter not a title. I almost can’t believe this hasn’t been addressed.

Must look really silly to the buyers.

Technically those gameplay video makers unless they have special permission by the game developer or are the game developer shouldn’t really be using the audio/game as standalone content since it is not really theirs.

Technically you’re right, but I don’t feel right ripping those guys off. I mean the track is in most of the cases very low in volume and the audio quality is also quite bad. I don’t think people will rip the track from those videos.

Ok, got a mail, that was quck. Seems like AdRev will whitelist those for me.

I agree, it’s not worth messing with them, I was just thinking you shouldn’t feel that guilty if you didn’t feel like hand clearing hundreds of videos. Cool of AdRev to make it easier for you, they are really easy to work with.

I have a weird problem. Seems like a Videogame developer has licensed one of my tracks and now AdRev is reporting all those “let’s Play” videos where my track is running in the background. I’ve already contacted AdRev, but it seems that I’ll have to whitelist all of them by hand, about 100 videos.

Technically those gameplay video makers unless they have special permission by the game developer or are the game developer shouldn’t really be using the audio/game as standalone content since it is not really theirs.

I see a lot of guys are now doing their own audio and voiceovers now to avoid copyright issues.

Its actually very smart thinking. I have a document that explains everything and how to run everything from music sale sites to Youtube/website/social media to paypal and all passwords. You never know when something unexpected can happen and our family could always use the income that our music can bring in for a very long time even after were gone.

Probably should have it all written up by a Lawyer in a Will.

Just go to Adrev’s contact page and Opt out. I did, it was a feature in testing that I hope they would never seriously consider rolling out, that would not be right to legit buyers of our music. I suggest everyone go op-out so they get the message.
