I tried to submit the entire contents of a "Found Sound" Cd compilation I
arranged. They rejected all but 2 tracks. In fact, 4 of the tracks that they
rejected were already posted on different artists' pages. Of course, it's
becuase they're in legal trouble resulting from their "my" idea,
which was discussed in depth here a while ago.

They do have different listeners, who have slightly different opinions on
what is "legal" and not (maybe even some who don't agree with the new
standards). So I could see how re-posting it would work. Since the new rules
went into effect, I have posted a few really blatant rip-offs and had them
get on (like the CD improvisation "I like the world").

My best advice would be to keep your eyes open, and look for a different
home for your material.

It turns out that one of the guys on the CD I mentioned at the top opened
his own site at Columbia University, so the entire contents of the disc are
available as mp3 at under the heading "works".

Oh shoot, was that a plug? I'm sorry, I swear it was an accident!
