So I Just got this message in my youtube account:

"Hi
My name is Paul Oomen (this is a serious mail)
I am Dutch and I have my own little studio .
I want to ask you if you can send me a mp3 or wma or wav file of one of your songs.
I want to remaster it and then send it back to you.
This is not a money or advertising thing or whatever.
I just like to do this
You can send me the file to my email adress
cheers
Paul"


I don't see why it would be fake/a scam or anything, but at the same time I spend a lot of time on my songs and don't want to risk anything happening to them. Do you think he's just being genuinely nice?

Paul is the nicest guy in the world and he wants to do ALL of the world's remastering for free because he has a lot of time on his hands and sitting in front of a computer, analyzing, and remastering everyone's songs for free is his favorite thing to do in the world.

Yay Paul.

Don't do it. Simple as. Even if he is genuine, it's better to be safe than sorry.

wait is his last name a profanity or did you censor it yourself?

The scam end of it is that he could make money off your works unless you actually have a copywright for it.

Is there any point even attempting to master a song that has been ripped down to MP3?

Your "songs" are probably not copyrighted, but who gives a damn? So, you send him the song. He's gonna think that song is catchy. Take it and copyright to his name and make millions off of it in the next 5 years... Woah!
Send him someone else's song. See if he actually replies. If it's decent, give him your song(s).

No, none of my stuff is copyrighted or anything.

He sent me this as a video response to my knockin on heaven's door cover. It's by him and it's produced very well:

But still, I don't think I'm going to end up sending him a song. Or I'll just send him something I don't really care about.

don't do it
I guess there's a chance he's just being nice, but most likely not. I think he's got some way to scam you, even if you don't know what it is. Better safe than sorry.

If you wanted to test it out, you could cover somebody elses song and send that, that way he can't steal it from you, because it's already copyrighted by somebody else

It's you don't have anything to loose, if you "don't have nothing to loose" that means you have somthing, because you don't have nothing.

Here is something you should do.

-Send him a cover of Never Gonna Give You Up
-See what happens

you could always google-search him and see if anyone else has been ripped off by him. even if you don't find anything tho, i'd advise against sending him anything.

Wait, so if I send him a cover of a song that's copyrighted he can't really do anything with it?

I just uploaded a cover of Under the Bridge by the Chili Peppers on my account. If I send him this song, there's really nothing to lose right?

EDIT: turns out he has an official site and everything...

Don't send anything over the internet. Saying "this is a serious email" in brackets makes it seem like a scam. Because you'll have no way of finding this guy after you send him your songs, I wouldn't advise it.

Yeah. Too bad that is against the law. You can't claim other peoples creative works as your own. Why are so many stupid people on this forum from North Carolina. It makes me kinda sad to say that is where I am from.
