'Legal'sounds illegally selling OC ReMix albums and more

0

It's a good thing the government shut down Megaupload. With those crooks out of business, content creators can finally earn money for their hard work. People should be paying for their digital goods on a site like Legalsounds, a music repository where, for some small change, you can legally acquire songs from all your favorite artists.

But what's this? Legalsounds is selling various OverClocked ReMix albums? And according to the OC ReMix Terms of Use, no profit is to be made from the site's content? And Legalsounds didn't request permission to distribute OC ReMix music? Why, that sounds WRONG!

And this doesn't just apply to OC ReMix either. Potentially, every single song on Legalsounds is being sold illegally without the express permission of the content creators, despite the site's claim that it pays license fees for all materials. Then again, the fact that this is an English-language site running on Russian servers should have been a big clue that something was fishy to begin with.

Many musicians in the game music arrangement community are already having their works sold on Legalsounds. Search the site to check if yours or other people's stuff is being hosted, then demand to have it removed. And if you find similar sites like Legalsounds, spread the word for their takedown.
