Ripping, cheating and re-releasing at Breakpoint and how we are going to deal with it

STS = Man With No Alias + Medicine Man

I've heard rumors of who these two are, and even directly asked one of them about it at bp05 but he admitted nothing, so my sources may have been incorrect.

As said by our spokesperson:

The sts-09 in the title and the addition of Synestethics is a complete fabrication of the pouet mods based on quick intepretation of what people said on irc.

Okkie: look at the source, there's the proof. It IS STS-09.
Scamp, since you started this thread after all... this one is a harder decision than some 3rd place exe music compo:
Suicide Barbie's music is ripped/sampled from a commercial track to a degree violating copyright laws - guess we could call it a clubmix of the original, or maybe just a timbaland ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXtgI6BBxVg

Yet in this case, they improved the music!

Dude! This really destroyed the TBL experience for me!!! First the thing with the photos which resemble the used scenes in the demo almost 100% exactly, then this track! Also almost 100% the same (except for the slower pace)! This is really f*#ked!

I wonder if they got their hands on the code via gargaj since i gave him my old usb mp3-player at tum and didn't check what was on it.. later i found out that the whole deities codebase (party-version, not final) was on that stick :-(

You did note that "if you find some source on it, you can keep it". Regardless, I did try to make a build of it - I never actually saw a compiler scream before.

STS = Kelwers + MFX right? :)

maybe you are right magic.. sts maybe used to be group called kelwers (dont confuse with kewlers) but they changed name? they got nothing to do with mfx or kewlers and my sources are always 100% right.

Btw, thx to scamp for pouetizing this thread. It gave me some happy feelings today.
I think, STS is Kuma's alter ego.

Kusma's even, sorry. ;)

I hear that Synesthetics is Future Crew.

(on a non-pouetized note, wasn't Melon's asm'03 demo disqualified for containing a remixed track?)

and that was a shame because i feel like a computer totally roxed :p
added on the 2007-04-12 17:22:45 by Zest Zest
No it was disqualified because it had a mix of several commercial tracks.

Then again, Vip2, State of Mind and Open your Eyes have won compos with ripped music. (and they are all french productions too!)
