License change? Now I delete

permalink   Tue, Jan 15, 2013 @ 12:42 PM
Don’t know if this is the right place to post this message (because I can’t see a relevant place in the forum index) so here goes:

Basically, I just noticed that my last few uploads were automatically published with a “zero” license, in which “the artist waives all rights”. I don’t remember this happening before. Anyway, I thought I’d just change the license but discovered there is apparently no way to do this. I’m sure I once changed a license-type before, but now I can’t. I tried several times but could not find a way to edit the license. Also, how come my stuff suddenly appears under this new license in which I am basically “waiving all rights” — I mean, why would anyone want to do that? And how come you can’t change it? Only alternative is to “unpublish”/delete those uploads because I don’t want to “waive all rights” to original songs.

I guess it’s partly my fault for not noticing the license-type when actually uploading, but I’d kinda got used to what I thought was the “default” license setting. Anyway., I’m not pleased that I’ve had stuff online for several days that I’m basically “disowning” by default. Probably won’t upload anymore.

Hi colab and thanks for the quick response. I should have noticed at the time of uploading and could kick myself that I didn’t. I tried again to edit the licenses but couldn’t and so I have deleted — it affected the last four or five tracks I uploaded. It wouldn’t be a big deal for something like a drum groove but for complete songs it’s bad news — the stuff has been up for a few days and Goodness knows what’s happened to it by now (hopefully, probably, nothing — but I just don’t know). It’s a shame there was no failsafe like a message that says “Do you REALLY want to waive all rights?”

Hey you two, how are you both?

I think Javo that the reason your past few uploads were cc Zero was because they used the jaspertine sample that was cc Zero licensed. I believe the remix just defaults to the same cc license as the sample used.

Yes, that seems reasonable and likely, as the tracks concerned did feature the jaspertine sample. The website probably did give me the option to change my license but I missed that for some reason and unwittingly agreed to the jaspertine-sample-default. Many thanks for the quick and helpful responses. I’ll be more careful next time.
