A musician and lawyer has used an algorithm to generate every possible melody in an attempt to end music copyright lawsuit claims. Working with programmer Noah Rubin, Damien Riehl built software capable of generating 300,000 melodies each second, creating a catalogue of 68 billion 8-note melodies. The melodies were then copyrighted and released into the public domain in the hope of stifling litigious musicians. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/music-copyright-algorithm-lawsuit-damien-riehl-a9364536.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1583074571

I have been trying to find answers but to no avail, so I'd like to ask some of my fellow Kompozers some questions revolving around my music. (the things I'm asking about does not include my work here on Kompoz, they are purely solo projects I work on in my spare time) :::The dilemma is as follows--- I'd like to share my music with others and let them use it in their own works, eg: letting someone use my music as background music for their Youtube video etc. As of now I use a creative commons license, this one https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ . The issue here however is that if an individual uses my music in a video, on a platform like Youtube, under the mentioned license, their video cannot earn revenue. If I choose to use a license such as this one - https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ then they can earn money from their videos, but I fear that if several people used one of my pieces of music on different videos it may end in a dispute as Youtube issues copyright infringement claims if you use a song that is being used by someone else. I don't want deal with a dispute nor would I want anyone else to. TL:DR, How can I give my music to others without running into legal "roadblocks." If this is not the place for such a discussion by all means let me know and I'll promptly delete

I very recently had a user post my draft song on SoundCloud (publicly) under the guise of "collaborating." When I asked him to take it down off SoundCloud, he refused. He later took it down but reposted it as his own work. SoundCloud helped me with it, but Kompoz wont answer my notes. This user also left a pretty hostile note on the track discussion. Any ideas on how to get Kompoz to take action (or take interest)? I am super frustrated and concerned that this guy is going to steal my other copyrighted songs and post them as his own.

I am still confused on something. If I create a spin-off and allow others to use the music I wrote originally, aren't i basically changing the status to 'Creative Commons"

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/100/hr4262/text/enr Berne Convention Implementation Act of 1988 to give you the keys to the protection of your works. Read the Berne convention. Try typing your name on google, and you see it, surely your music or text, published and sold, without your consent. It is indeed very difficult to protect his works. any unwanted or pests, will find always funny to plunder your works. Good reading Yann
