Permission for music in the SMW Music section

Hello all.

I have a question about permission for the music that is publicly available in the SMW Music section. I just want to know if I would have to get in contact with the porters/creators and ask for permission to import the music into my hack, or if the majority of them would be fine if I credited them in some way.

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi
If they have submitted the resources to the section you can use them without worrying about anything or contacting the autor. It's always nice to give credit, though.
Thanks for letting me know. I'm just trying to give them the respect they deserve for such great ports. Also I would've given them credit anyway.

Hi
Some of the authors are inactive, so it's less likely they still care for this site and often also SMW hacking itself or have time to give you permission, so why do you even need it?
Calling Tim Follin a musical genius would be offensive to him.

It's simply a common courtesy to ask the creator of a work for their permission to upload/store/publish/etc something of theirs somewhere if they did not do it themselves. Whether they've been on the site recently or not does not matter. They made the work, not the person asking to upload it. If you can still get a hold of the person, you should always ask for their permission.
Personally I don't mind if other people using my port without noticing me, but a credit is always nice to see.

If I release something, it means I want other people using that.
Any resource posted on the site can be used without permission, else it wouldn't be posted as a public resource. Personally, I believe best practice is to give credit in the Credits editor which is located in the OW Editor, since there is nowhere else to really conveniently credit people.
