OC ReMix plagiarism: report it here!

Recommended Posts

The two songs are now privatised. Find it funny that he also uses his 'personal' Facebook page to share to his fans as opposed to a fanpage. :\

Anyone contacted Soundcloud regarding this charming gentleman?

yes. probably why he removed/privatized the songs.

One of the songs is a demo song from Acid Music Studio. I'm fairly certain that several other songs are stolen as well.

What I really enjoy is how some, if not most of his tracks are practically MIDI rips, and it DEFINITELY shows. Calling them "remakes" doesn't mask the fact that they are MIDI rips.

Update, I contacted Omegas3 directly and dropped some "It's not cool to steal people's music. Do the right thing and take all the stolen stuff down and I'll forget all about it, or I'll have your account shut down." And he seems to have closed down his account. Good for him, I hope he learned his lesson.

In other news, Megaclown is back! https://soundcloud.com/megaclown

His song WTF is according to Shazam ripped off of an artist by the name of BeatMagic -

.

I hope Soundcloud shuts him down again. It's ridiculous that they'd allow a repeat offender like him to stay unpunished.

I highly doubt SoundCloud monitors accounts that have been previously shut down. Besides, people can easily change their URLs making it harder to track them.

It seems that BeatMagic is already on the track though, so maybe he'll report infringement

The boldest of tales. A fine read.

Truly one for the ages. He's got a wonderful story arc, strong and compelling character development, and the metaphor of the stripper is wholly original and well placed. 5 out of 5 top hats. Would read again.

This was the second video displayed when I searched for Ice Cap Zone remix. It's been out for six years without crediting the original and people are asking whether they can use it in their work.

Link to original:

The YouTube user was last active 2 weeks ago, maybe he can be gently persuaded to credit the original? I commented on the video saying McVaffe was the original author, and that it was posted here in 2001. Maybe that'll be enough?

yeah, he didn't claim to be his, so asking politely for credit and pointing him to the proper adress (the ocremix page or a youtube link ) so he know where that come from.

Sometime lack of credit are just from ignorance.

I'm sorry for causing problems. I didn't take any action myself, because I was hoping that people here had a procedure for handling cases like this. Please give my apologies to the person I reported if you manage to get in touch with him, because it wasn't my intention to unleash the dogs on him.
