Asking me "Can I remix your music?"

Let's make something clear.

I've been getting a lot of these messages a good while now, and they are completely unnecessary.

You don't need to ask remixing permissions from people in general, especially not from me. It's an another case when you start using the music in places, particularly commercially (as in you make money with it).

If you want to know what you can do with people's music in this site, check this box out in every track's page:

When you open the "Commons Deed" link, you will be faced with basic information what you can do with it:

This is my default license.

It's not that hard, people.

Sincerely,
- X

I was about to ask the same question as @FirePowerX but it turns out it's about the licensing terms. Well addressed.

So, we don't need to ask. We need only to credit you and distribute the resulting work under a similar license.

Yes! Why not? This is a good idea. And yes, you can use the mencionated license.

at least theyre not asking you to actually remix their music. i have a feeling that would be even worse.

I'm glad you adressed this. If good ol Tommy Fap.. I mean FULP stated this, would be nice. The boxes are there for a purpose guys. Read them!

Seriously? Who would want to remix your music??? I mean, what they would remix?? Your music is too perfect to be remixed.

Found when creating a new project
Remixes & Covers: If your song is a cover or remix, it must be done with the permission of the original artist and must not be for a song that is represented by a major label or licensing agency. We are unable to host this sort of material.
Hmm.
Are you giving your express permission to everyone on Newgrounds?
Just wanting to warn you that this seems to be what you are doing, even though it is not what Newgrounds says it is doing.

Xtrullor responds:

Guess so I am, it never really has been a norm to ask permissions for remixes in general, unless you are dealing with highly secured licensed music.

Cool, I'm thinking of remixing Jnana or I like your face once i get better at making dubstep and orchestral music, so i will be sure to keep thin in mind :D

You should collab with Geoplex. Collabing with Spaze was also a great idea, too bad he didn't want to...

Your music is so good, that I listen to it in my sleep. Literally. I have a CD with some of my favorite songs by you.

Thanks for sharing this post. I was uncomfortable with someone with as much influence as yourself saying people shouldn't ask permission to remix works until you rolled out the point about our licenses on NG. You're right. It's not that damn hard!

Using them for profit without negotiating terms, on the other hand.

Is there any chance you could give someone who wants to remix a song​ the FLP file? For instance, I want to remix Sphero, but have no clue where to start, mainly instrument-wise. If you can't it's fine, but just wondering
