Your attitude leaves a lot to be desired. Would you like someone taking your work and selling it without you getting any money off it, or not even being notified?? Because that is exactly what you are doing.

NO, you CAN'T use that music for your project, commercial or not, without the permission of its original composer.
Not that or any other Amiga MOD file you find around. You NEED permission/agreement with the composer. SPECIALLY if the project is commercial!! you will have to at least PAY to him for use of the music. Just because you managed to download the MOD file for free doesn't mean you are free to use them whichever way you want. All those tunes are fully copyrighted and all rights retained by the composers.

SAME WITH THE GRAPHICS. You can't go out and take people's work, bundle it together and release it, specially NOT commercially!!!!!!!! What is wrong with you?

David Whittaker might be represented by Chris Abbot of C64audio.com. Try getting a hold of him through there. But suffice to say, you are doing things extremely wrong and it's quite offensive to those who created the work you are basically ripping off.

This is what ticks me off the most:

Yeah of course, doing things on your own is hard, but that is most of the point of doing things. Stealing is not a solution. 5 months?! Do you have any idea how long it took to make these games most times? Lot more than that. And if you need help, you can collaborate with graphic artists/musicians. But no, you decided to rip off someone else's hard work. Yeah, because it's easier. We understand! :rolleyes

I'd agree with the above post if this game is going to be a commercial product. However, I doubt that is the case. I don't see a problem with using the music/graphics in a freeware product.

The original poster says in his post that it will be a commercial product.

Even if it is freeware, the music and graphics are copyrighted by their creators, it is a matter of code, respect and good taste to ask for permission to use them.

OH i as read my post that a source of big confusion, and when i read your answer i realize this complete not what i want to explain
I am afraid of your reaction but i understand so SORRY for my bad post its my fault .....

pls if you can just read this and forgot the original post

1) I dont sell anything with copyright and i dont do this
3) For the sprite I made them BY MYSELF. their are completely different than the original.
4) My intention is just to make a tribute to SOBT if i am evil i am stupid evil to make reference in SOBT in the game ( its legal)....
5) at this time there are nothing under copyright in my game

The only thing i wanted finally its :

can you help me to find the owner for music FOR PAY HIM !!!!!!?

Why because its hard ... yes hard to find a musician who can reproduce the ambiance of SOBT
After some try PREFER to buy the right becasue music is the best part of SOBT and i think its possible to give people curiosity about SOTB.
Maybe its not clear......

thanks for the site but I didnt understand why Chris Abbot is the legal owner, i understood with a specialsit of game industriy that the music is a property of editor (but i send a mail to shop@c64audio.com) we will see
And i contact a avocat (a french one with no mistake :)) of international copyrigth for video game who can help me to find the owner maybe SONY CE ... a french one with no mistake :)

If you can forgive this mistake maybe you can give me advice to find the legal owner

Thank in advance and sorry for the confusion
