Morning at the Village Square = Approach (https://modarchive.org/module.php?155605) by Nightbeat
Looking for the Birds = Ask Not (https://modarchive.org/module.php?178036) by Warder

Given the general style I am sure there are a few more tracks by Warder in there that I don't recognize.

As for using CK' tune, do people have no shame?

Oh yeah, I knew I had heard those Badliz tunes before.

I'm just honored to be featured on the same album with Nightbeat and Warder. :D

I'll drop Warder a message though if he wants to do something about the rips.

The one i'm having trouble locating and the most annoying is The Battle is Over (10)..

I so recognise the tune and it's really bugging me what it is. I'm sure I'll remember what it is...

Knew it was well known, all i had to do was listen for 8 seconds longer, as the 1st sample that's played in the module has been cut..  Nice find..

now it seems like original modules ripped in track 1-3 had a name that start with the letter a while 5-10 started with the letter b. (with the exception of 6, which started with "the", but had a word that started with b right after)
but i dunno if original module ripped in track 4 starts with a or b...

(excuse my shitty english)

its quite similar to what sa mowar did as all songs he ripped for his/her lost in love album had a name that all started with "al". maybe sa mowar and babylon project might be a same person. and maybe they both selected modules at quick picks

Ditto Music wasn't so cooperative. They told me to send copyright claims to all the stores individually and have them deal with it instead of just investigating the case themselves and pulling the release off from distribution.

Wow, that's completely backwards. I'd try to talk to them until they give in.

Yeah, I sent them a response asking them to review that ridiculous stance. As the distributor of the illicit material, they're the final link in the chain and have the easiest time resolving the case.

Do you want us to add some power to that? I can write them as well about this.

Apparently no amount of pressure will change their stance. I'm too busy to be sending copyright claims to youtube atm, will do it some time when feeling like it.

Funny thing with these ripped albums, none of them are making more than $5 a year anyway. Just a matter of principle to take them down.

...and in the end, it could prevent you or others from spreading your own music for free because that distributor would claim that it's theirs.

apparently babylon project's what happened in the forest album just got taken down from youtube so.... justice served?
