I noticed that there a ton of our tracks on a sight called [name removed] for download… with the watermark, of course… but I was wondering why?
If anyone can shed some light, let me know. Thanks.

Thank You, I was doing a search this morning. Noticed a had quite a few clicks and not much activity and found 5 of my instrumentals on there.
I have found one of my songs on a number of mp3 illegal download type sites. They take youtube videos and convert them to an easy to use download mp3 for end users.
I have yet to find one “without” the watermark, because I embed the watermark in all of my youtube videos. As long as the watermark is there, I view it as free promotion. So I don’t really see a point in doing anything about it.
But, for all Audiojunglers who promote on youtube, I highly recommend putting AJ watermark on your videos, because there are ways to get the audio out. And if your video starts getting a lot of hits, it might be a target for these types of sites for illegal use.
