Then you might have received this message in your inbox. If haven't submitted anything to the AP yet, but plan to, read this and make sure your song follows the rules...
You have been banned from submitting audio on the Newgrounds Audio Portal for one or more of the following reasons;
This is a place to share your own original works, not to post your favorite Eminem songs. If you didn't write it, do not upload it.
You aren't allowed to have ANY copyrighted samples in your song. Not even a millisecond, so don't even think about uploading that Soulja Boy remix. "Fair use" does NOT apply on Newgrounds, as flash authors might want to use your song in a sponsored flash (or Newgrounds might want to use it for promotional purposes) - once someone pays for a song with a copyrighted sample, you have to give some money to the original author.
Note: COVERS of existing copyrighted songs as long as it doesn't contain ANY samples from the original song - vocals, instruments, sound effects, etc.
Put some effort into it. Nobody likes to listen to the same overused sample over and over again.
Downloading a Zelda MIDI and assigning it to different instruments from the original is NOT your own work.
Besides falling under the Stock Loops rule, Magix Music Maker automatically puts all songs you create with it under its own license - uploading the song to Newgrounds is in violation of that license.
Give us a break. White noise, blowing into the microphone, screaming, etc. doesn't belong in the Audio Portal - it just annoys people.
