Yeah. I am experiencing the same. Though I had a fantastic December. Best month so far, regardless whether my sales dropped hugely since friday. But I hope it’ll keep up in january again :-). Now it’s time for everybody to rest and recharge their batteries to be prepared for all the challenges that will come next year.
Amen to that – good luck in the New Year everyone! :)

I use Twitter and Soundcloud but all I end up with is the odd new person (usually musician) following me on both sites. Hardly going to help. I am also wary that people could rip off my music on soundcloud
Have you thought of using AdRev if you post music on Soundcloud?

I think that I will just be giving it away now (yeah baby), I do like money but not taxation without (Cause I don’t vote) representation! lol This has been the best forum so far for me and I may decide to be a non-author soon. I’m just starting a reverbnation account with the same user name as here, in case you may need music for your porn-oh-oh-oh-lower-yeah-that’s-the-spot home movies! lol PS send me a copy or link! lol :)
Have you scored our home made movies yet? Can we have lot’s of wah-wah guitar?

but i guarantee 90% of the people here claiming they are only in it for protection won’t switch over unless they are monetizing as well.

Well, I believe each music library must enter LicenseID – it’s not as easy as “just switch” for a single author. This will be years before that happens.

And of course authors will want the illegitimate use to be monetized.

To more directly answer what I think you’re asking:

Would you rather let an illegal video stay up and make money, or have it taken down?

I would choose to leave it because so many videos with illegitimate use will earn 100 times more than a license is worth. Just the way it is I’m afraid. :)

i hear ya, and in fact, if i do it, i freely admit i would also prefer the $, too. the perfect solution is if adrev didn’t just send out notices to everyone without first checking for legit use. but of course they can’t line their pockets as much and they would multiply their admin if they did that. much easier to just accuse everyone and not care about the repercussions.

i just find the “it’s not about the money” sanctimonious rhetoric amusing.
Inspired “sanctimonious rhetoric amusing” Ukelele – that’s the title of my new track! :)

What is wrong with this song, I thought people would like it, it’s bright,it’s commercial it sounds good: http://audiojungle.net/item/brilliant-corporate/9476032
http://audiojungle.net/item/inspiration/7737562 How does this monotone crap sell? I think if they stick even the shittiest track on to the first page, if it has a slight luck it will start selling not because it is good, but because it was on the front page, chosen by envato.

You need to get a better grasp of what stock music is about. This track is a great innocuous and pleasant sounding track for the background of all kinds of corporate videos. The fact that it’s actually a bit boring is to its advantage. :D I can imagine MetroMusic’s track in some commercial or corporate settings, but I would never expect it to do as well as that other track.

Also, calling other peoples tracks shitty is against the rules, and makes you look like an asshole.
:shocked:

Good morning/ afternoon/ evening/ everybody my name is Graham and I’m a user of AdRev. I have posted a disclosure to this effect on my profile page to inform potential buyers of this. I have seen the statements from AdRev and the amount of unlicensed usage is huge. The digital domain is always going to be a problem for digital creatives as this arena is still very much in it’s infancy of protection methods. In time it will be satisfactory to all but time it will take time young Skywalkers. Let us draw deep breaths now since semantics and pedantics and crazy antics and anything else ics will continue as this is a contentious issue. We do not want to annoy buyers who purchased a license with claims made by AdRev / YouTube but we all, sellers and buyrs have to work together to understand both sides and come to a middle ground that suits us all. I earlier posted a possible way forward during a crazy, madcap and off the planet idea about having a checkbox when entering file attributes at the point of uploading but of course this is a tiny part of having “The Right Stuff”. Man never reached the moon at the first attempt, I am not suggesting that audio identification is that complicated but I dare say it is very complex.
Dolla – no that should be 1c.

Just thinking aloud here but how about when uploading tracks we have to fill out file attributes such as track length etc. How about a check box to signify AdRev enabled. Just a thought.
