When I figured it out and called the composer out on it, he literally said "wow man, I am shocked you caught that. I didn't think anyone would know that track. How did you know that song? You must be some kind of music encyclopedia or something?!!? Damn, well... ok... I'll swap out that guitar with something else..."

Beware When Using Sample Libraries
This is absolutely unbelievable and I am 100% convinced of not using samples, other than from clearly reputable places like Heavyocity, like their product Damage for example which I do trust completely.

W.A Production. I just cannot believe how negligent this is. This must be a nightmare. Everyone needs to know about this!

but in this example, WA Productions is the owner of the infringing material and has to resolve the problem with the product and financially compensate Extreme for the violation.

The way splice is different... they say they aren't responsible for anything and give the contact info they have for the content creator over to the lawyer. So there is never any incentive for Splice themselves to police and do a "deep dive" check on the product they are selling.

To anyone who read the original legal letter I posted over at Soundloop and didn't think that could happen with Splice, you should probably read this.

Yup... great post! this is exactly the sort of thing I was talking about...

Now anyone who downloaded these construction kits through Splice and used them for music library tracks, has to go back to the libraries and tell them they have to pull the tracks because they contain illegal samples from a competing music library. Doh!

Do you know if WA Productions' stuff shows up under Splice Community or under Splice Sounds?

I believe all samples are under Splice's sounds section. From what I understand, the community aspect is just pertaining to "Splicing" other people's projects, contests, and profile pages, etc.

I don't know if WA has pulled out of Splice completely, or just pulled those samples. I'm not seeing them listed as a content partner, so I'm not sure...
