I'll copy/paste the text I wrote in the Copyright Infringement Form before I realized I completely misunderstood how it worked.. cough.. Still, thoughts? If you have any questions, let me know, the text might not explain it clearly enough - especially if you're not aware of things like the 90's PC Demoscene and music created in trackers.
All the best,

I stumbled upon a literal repost of one of my earlier tracks. As in, really really old.. about before the internet old.. I'm not extremely pissed off, but I *do* wonder how things like thisare dealt with.
Here is all the information I can give you to check this report (again, I realize this might be a bit tricky, depending on your background, but it still is pretty freaking blatant thievery in the end, so, there you go..)
The infringing (?) track in this case:
Here is the original :
That needs some explanation.. The second link is a zipped version of the original module (mt2 format, a late tracker format). I hope you folks are aware of what that is and how to play it? I linked the original .zip - since it confirms the actual date I made it public. If you need a mp3, Sort of. Close enough though.
If you have trouble playing it, here is a version of it on soundcloud:
Although I realize I actually uploaded that way later than the infringer, *grin*.
He/she even used the title and my nickname. Which made me wonder briefly if it was for some other kind of purpose, but the comment suggests pretty definitive he/she made the track.
Curious how you deal with this? It's 100% infringement, but the situation isn't really average.
