I think people have to come to grips with reality here. This is not a site where musicians are encouraged to explore their creativity and inner beauty. This is a site that sells COMMERCIAL music for advertising. Nothing more and nothing less. The faster you come to grips with that the better. (it took me some time to face this also)
If you want beautiful naming and creativity, produce your album and release it. I’m sure we all have that side, but that’s not what this site does.Simply the truth.
That is very true however it is still a huge issue for searches and the marketplace. It’s just ass backwards and shows great lack of care or comprehension by the devs. Do you think it’s helpful for a buyer to have to choose between 1000 tracks named “Inspiring” ?
It is actually comedically stupid and I bet that buyers wonder what the search engine is actually doing aside from considering the title.
Its been an issue for years… The search system is really terrible for someone trying to find top quality work too which exists here, it is just buried under shit.
“As many have pointed out, PROs are a much more complex issue than it may seem”
Show Collis a royalty statement from any other music library and that will be an easy decision..
I thought for a second that I would start uploading new music. Then I read the fine print and realized its even worse than before essentially selling an all media license for $18. Tim McMorris and other big authors need to threaten removing their entire catalog or Envato will keep ripping you guys off.
Envato is way over their head with the music licensing business. About time they hire someone competent to make some real changes. Their current strategy pretty much says NO THANKS to millions of dollars in revenue from royalties. All because they want their website to say “Royalty Free” even though themselves, or their clients don’t have a [language removed] clue how royalties work in the real world.
Am I a hypocrite for keeping songs up for sale here? Hell yes. It makes me cringe, but it is still a chunk of change every month. Only reason my profile is still up is that I hope Envato will someday get with the picture..
Do yourself a favor and publish your better works though a library that respects these rights and the value of music.
AJ has given no word of even considering allowing composers to publish PRO registered works and it has been on the table for well over a year like you said.
Envato does realize that they could get a 50% chunk of the royalties as the “publisher” of the music right? It’s ridiculous in the first place that they opt out of the PRO collection process just so they can keep the label of “royalty free” and not confuse buyers into thinking they might have to pay some phantom royalties on the music. Even sillier considering they themselves lose out on the revenue stream too, not just the artist.
Looks are much better, functionality and ease of use is much worse :/
This Mitt Romney ad! Even though I support Obama, still coolhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=or68CbMAckI&feature=plcp
