Recently at Envato, we’ve been posting about various copyright and intellectual property issues.
We’ve now created a new KnowledgeBase article to help AudioJungle authors better understand what is and what is not acceptable on AudioJungle when it comes to ‘pastiche’ (imitation) recordings. You’ll find it here:
AudioJungle authors, please take moment to read this article! The main points are that you are not allowed to directly copy, imitate or reproduce copyrighted audio recordings for your AudioJungle tracks. But it is permissible to incorporate general music styles into your composition.
It’s sometimes hard to know where to draw the line, so there’s more guidance in the article.
Remember, marketplace authors are always legally responsible for the content they submit to our marketplaces. Infringement of copyright may result in item disablement or in the worst case, account disablement for repeated violations of our Content Policy.
Existing AudioJungle items that don’t meet these requirements will be disabled if we become aware of them. So we ask all AudioJungle authors to review your entire portfolio and remove items that don’t meet copyright requirements.
If you have questions or comments on existing AudioJungle items (yours, or other authors’), please don’t share links here or on our forums. Instead, contact support here.
