So I spotted a thief with one of my compositions who was trying to make a quick buck (There were 5 ads in their video...—Without buying the track rights from me first.) Luckily the situation has been resolved without further BS.
But this has brought me to write this. If you want to use my music, you can freely IF:
- You don’t monetise the content.
- Credit the Author (In the content, contents description/caption, or pinned comment.)
- Link me directly to your content after it is used.
- Nothing has been modified prior to use.
- Personal use. Like—Listen on your MP3 players or iWhatevers.
If you want to use my music for more professional means, please message me for my price sheet, hiring/contract information, and instructions.
Remember: I only ever use NewGrounds and Tumblr (which I use to reblog random posts from time to time, and follow music blogs.) .
I don’t have a YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, or any other social media platform. I have a Discord, not Skype. Just Steam for games (Mostly Skyrim, Among Us, TF2, and HOI4 I play.) and sometimes chat with other players when I feel like a people person.
If there is anyone who is under my alias (Glow/Glowboy/GlowBoyMusic) in any of these other networks— Tell me. And I will deal with it quietly.
Theives always target smaller or otherwise unknown artists and creators like myself waaay more than the popular crowd because they usually get away with it easier with little to zero repercussion. Be safe fellow musicians/artists!
EDIT: I looked at my current uploads download info, and it appears they didn’t even download the song in question (Aftermath) through my portal..Which leads me to believe they just recorded it from the browser or something (explains the poor quality, too. Nice try.) My good friend who helps me out with a weekly thiefcheck found my song after doing some magical technical shit that I don’t even understand (Kinda like a reverse search but not?)
EDIT 05/28/21: Haha so I gave in and got a Discord after my friend suggested I should. Pretty cool actually.
