Deezer.com and OCR

Recommended Posts

Wasn't quiiite sure where to post this, but I figured here would be best.

Many of you may or may not know of deezer.com, a music website that allows you to play many tunes.

Anyway, I did a search on the site for Zelda music - and came up with four tunes from OCRians. You can see the tunes here, but they are listed as follows:

Zelda 'LinkGoestoNewOrleans' OC Remix by Neskvartetten

Zelda 2 'Hipccordian' OC Remix by AmIEvil

Zelda 3 'LostWoodsSouthCentral' OC Remix by Ben Cousins

Zelda 3 'town(busylifeOC)' OC Remix by Hazama

I know there have been incidents in the past where music produced by OC Remixers gets distributed without their consent, and I wanted to make sure this wasn't happening here. If anyone knows these artists (or, even better, ARE these artists) and knows the situation involving Deezer (specifically, whether the music was approved for upload), I want to make sure they are aware of the appearance of their music on Deezer. My thanks to anyone who can contact the people in question about this situation.

Oh and, bonus points for anyone who remembers me.

As far as I can tell, this follows the terms of use in the content policy. They don't have to ask as long as OCR and the artist are credited, and the metadata is intact.

I remember you, Kitsuta :P

Also, Dhsu is right, they're playing by the book here.

Wheeeee (on both accounts).

I did want to let the artists know anyhow. I mean, I figured they might want to know either way.
