... Don’t forget, guys, that you make production music that is destined to be used within another work…

Yup, resale and stuff, but not copyright. I mean you can’t put copyright on work which is using Work (in terms of license). But may be I’m wrong. Really need some staff-guys here ).

“c.Unless you have our prior written consent, you must not directly or indirectly license, sub-license, sell or resell or provide for free the Work or offer to do any of these things unless the Work is incorporated into a work you have created.

Maybe this can be modified as “unless the Work is incorporated into a VISUAL work you have created”.

You can’t take a song, slap some lyrics on it and resell it. Are you serious? Every author still owns and controls the rights to the music. We are selling use of music, not the music and it’s rights.

Well, it depends. For example I have “Hip Hop Backing Tracks” for sale. They are intended to be purchased by rappers for their songs that can be copyrighted later.

Exactly my thinking. I always assumed the license was referring to visual works, rather than another musical work. Definitely need Envato put the record straight on this one, even though it may be common knowledge amongst many on AJ.

According to your logic, if someone uses a piece of your music in a 90 minutes film, he can’t copyright the film?

Cheers Art, funnily enough I just read that on the license pages. I’m sure this is going to shake a few boats! ;)

Look at it this way:

“Life My Life” #1 track for a while on AJ – really nice track….ya know though, I think a whistle, yeah throw in a whistle and NOW I ’ll have a CRAZY hit. I think I will call it something very unique like “Live My Life 2” and upload it to AudioJungle. I’ll even copy the original file’s tags and description – I mean, not copy, I’ll make sure to add a few words….. of course I am not trying to steal it’s traffic or anything. It’s completely a derivative work – I mean, come on, have you heard that whistle I added?? It practically makes the melody now…..after all I bought the extended license.

“Your Little Planet Corp” # 2 on AJ right now – but ohhh if its had some “OH’s” in there…. THEN it would surely sell thousands. Perfect deal. I think I will call it ” My Little Planet Corp”

lol :)

See, there is a reason this doesn’t happen already, and that’s because it’s against the license policy. If it isn’t and support comes by saying it’s allowed, you can expect all of your tracks to soon be modified slightly and re-sold here and everywhere else online :)

I’d say it’s a matter of proportion. The license allows incorporating The Work in a work, but it does not tell anything about incorporating a work in The Work. So, if The Work (original file) constitutes less then 50% of a work (derivative), i.e. incorporated into it, then it’s done accordingly to the terms and conditions of the current license and you can protest all you want, but legally it would be allowed.
