ya, I thought about uploading the files into a ‘Tulip hosted’ domain somewhere. Security wasn’t something I much considered but it seems like a bit of a glitch that somehow works anyway.
I guess, my main concern, about hosting sound, or music, files on Tulip hosted domains (AWS, Azure, GC, whatever) was something I personally had run into a bit of an issue with. A lot of, or most, of the mp3 files out there are copyright protected. I tried to find some ‘public domain’ ones and was able to find some academic and other sites that directed me to public domain, or ‘Creative Commons’ files. I just wonder what the legal/copyright issues would be if Tulip hosts copyrighted files on their cloud hosts? Especially if those sounds/music is used in some commercial, or money making, app?? I ran into this issue myself when I used a Rolling Stones song on a YouTube video I had posted. I had just used the song as an intro to a short comedy bit I had done, which I recorded and posted on youtube (warning…my comedy act is by no means ‘clean’ and could be considered rather vulgar, although not as vulgar as other comics I’ve seen there) I noticed, a few weeks ago on my youtube channel that it had a ‘restriction’ column marked as ‘copyright complaint’. I don’t steal other comics materials so I wondered what that was. When I clicked on it it came up with something to the effect that 'Polydor records, representing the Rolling Stones and their song ‘Can’t you hear me knockin’, the 1977 remix, was their property and any money, or monetization, I received from that clip, was theirs. I’d like to think that one of the members of the band took notice but I imagine it was some bot, which I understand youtube regularly runs, that found my use of that song. I clipped the song portion out from the beginning of the video and a few hours later the complaint dissappeared.
Just saying, that there may be other copyright/legal/fair use issues involving with people uploading and using sounds, songs, or music that is then incorporated into their apps.
Honestly, that’s kind of why I was trying to get it to run with the 64-bit translation. Then, at least it would be embedded in the app itself and maybe not so much a copyright/distribution issue??
Anyway, I look forward to seeing how this develops. I know there are some custom sounds that people would probably like to use in their apps. Again, copyrighted, but I can imagine that if they used a Tulip App to do self-ordering at a McDonald’s they might want it to say something like ‘Have it your way’, or ‘would you like fries with that’. Other MFg operations I’m sure would have their own use cases.
