This is straight forward theft of intellectual property.

This statement was probably a bit strong. It appears to be theft of intellectual property.

No, they used “Music and SFX <name here>” which implies just about anything and nothing.

It implies whatever a legal entity determines it implies.

I think it is worth pursuing. As I stated, it is not an Audiojungle matter. Opening up a dialog with the company that did this might not hurt, as long as it is rational and intelligent.

Where I do think Gae might get stuck is that it will be hard to find fault with the company that created the game even if they were around. Plausible deniability applies. They could easily state that they had no knowledge of the origins of the music.

The company providing the music should at least know they were caught and provide an explanation. Might cause them to think twice before doing it again. It might not. But I think there is a legitimate beef here. Opening a dialog probably wouldn’t hurt if approached properly.

Maybe this is something you should think about before placing your tracks for sale here… Welcome to royalty free music licensing world…

Ridiculous. Copyright infringement is not now, nor should it ever be, part of the royalty free music industry.

Gae, you own the copyright. This is NOT an Audiojungle issue. This is not a royalty free music issue. This is straight forward theft of intellectual property. Claiming someone else’s work as your own without the approval of the copyright owner is immoral and, in most countries, illegal.

If it were me, I would pursue this first by contacting the owner of the game and letting them know you plan to defend your copyright. Then, I would do just that. It may cost me some legal fees, but people who steal will continue to do so until they are held accountable.

That’s my $.02.

It’s my sharks+Christmas+blenders and bowling alley pack. (I’ve included birds as a separate option on each track because I feel it’s important to give buyers the choice. I think they appreciate it when you go the extra mile.)

Unfortunately, we have to reject your submission for the following reasons:

Failure to add Taikos and Ukulele

Please resubmit after adding these elements.

Next time I hope you consider how much work goes into this stuff before rudely dismissing my submissions as fodder for your “humour”. You’re a Canadian, right? Figures…

;)

And out comes the hockey stick…

Adrien, I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to post this. I really believe this needs to be a stick and required reading. In fact, if it were me, I would make this a yearly review item for all authors and capture that each and every author has reviewed it.

I may be one of the few, but infield the review process one of the finest and fairest I have encountered. If something gets rejected, I have complete freedom to choose how to respond. I can try to improve and resubmit, i can submit elsewhere, etc. I submitted the track meaning that, basd on my research, I believe that AJ is a viable consignment space for my goods. But even in a consignment store, the proprietor reserves the right to reject some products for inclusion.

I was shocked to find out the the review team has 11 members. I thought the number was much, much higher. Kudos for doing so much with so few resources.

Thanks again! Michael

PS – Now can I be a featured author? ;-)

PPS – Just kidding. My response was sincere.

PPPS – But can I, huh, can I??
