Not everyone retains all such settings and raw form of their tracks. I
don't, and so then, if I released my music as GPL, or happened to use a
synth patch under the GPL license, then I'd be royally f***ed if someone
called me on it, and asked for my "source" don't you think?

IF we make multiple licenses, this would be an option. I think that IF
we do put multiple licenses, we'd put checkboxes so that a single file
can be under various licenses. For instance, if I release a patch, I
would like you to use it however you see fit. I don't see why I would
NEED to put my content under the GPL just for you to take any kind of
interest in it though... Because my license would allow you to do
anything with it, short of requiring your project to be under the same
infectious license.

I still question that GPL is even an appropriate license for such files.

I don't plan on having ads, so hopefully once the site is in full swing,
someone out there will find it useful and donate a small amount of funds
to help keep it running. But this isn't a request. The project has only
just been started.

We won't require registration just to download. That'd be silly. :)
Uploading and commenting, yes. Downloading, no.
