    Hey guys, I have a little question concerning the music in my map... Did anyone ever get problems for using copyrighted music? For example Two Steps From hell, they would be one hell of a theme music.

    I've only once seen a map being rejected for illegal music and that wasn't even on hive.
    You'll be just fine, there's several maps in the resource section with imported music.

    Lol, I dont think copyright will be a problem. I'm sure its illegal, but I dont see police trolling forums or warcraft 3. I have music in my map which I didn't get permission for. No worries :)

    Make sure to play it via the music channel. Nothing annoys players more than having to mute sound channel due to msuic being forced through it.

    Some players like to listen to their own music and still hear game sounds.

    Alright thanks guys! :) @ Dr. Supergood: I will take that advice, especially since I like to do that myself.

    Well we police don't tend to troll... we tend to hide in the shadows and pop out saying "C@D!Or else!" then we call the guys that actually can do something about it XD haha. I personally have no jurisdiction on the internetz.

    anyways as far as I am concerned, the only thing you need to do is give credit where it is due, make sure you legally own the music, and if the band themselves want it removed, remove it post haste.
