I have only been asked for an unmastered version one time. Puzzled, I inquired as to why an unmastered version was needed.
I was told it was because the track was to be used as part of an album project and they needed to match the mastering to the other tracks. I explained this was against the license rules and they were very quick to apologize and explain that it had been a misunderstanding and that they had interpreted the licensing rules incorrectly.
I would stick to mastered versions only.
Just now checking out this thread. Glad everyone had a great time. Looks like it was a blast!
@Scott – that’s too funny about the early morning airport commercial playing my track.
Congrats, dude! Gareth has been an invaluable resource for all of us here on AJ and I personally appreciate his contributions to the forums very much. Nice golden milestone!
Sweet lookin’ gold paw there, Gareth. Congrats on that!
According to AJ rules an exclusive author can’t put his music out without watermark, but his clients can. So, what’s the problem?
This is an unlicensed version lifted from the original Comic Con video. Even if it were licensed, the music needs to be part of another project and not presented as a stand-alone music track. In this case it is the stand-alone music track that is being presented.
People make you a free PR and you file reports against them? Please explain me the logic here.
Here’s the logic: This video was created simply to syphon traffic away from my videos. The owner of the page does not generate subscribers and viewers on his own. People that found his video discovered my music through the Comic Con video and did a YouTube search. His sexy woman image perhaps grabs more attention than my image and thus accumulates views faster than my video.
People who like the Comic Con video and are looking for the song by doing a YouTube search should be coming directly to my YouTube video. I should be getting referrals for those listeners and not have my views diluted by a questionable tactic.
Well, my kind email request to take the video down has been rejected so I filled out the YouTube copyright form. I guess that’s the way it has to be done.
