Concept Originality Policy

The basic tenets of the Vinylmint community are honesty, originality, and respect.

Do not copy other sound creators’ work. Understand that some similarity is to be expected.

Obvious concepts are open to be developed by all designers, for example:

  • a voice over style for a training video
  • the arrangement of strings provided in an audio clip to be used in your production

However, sound creators must create their own unique implementations, and must not merely attempt to replicate the decisions made be other sound creators.

Any concept presented in the brief can be developed by all sound creators in the Vinylmint community.

Unique and original concepts must be respected and only developed by the sound creator that introduced them.

Should a dispute arise, please be polite and professional while the dispute is resolved.

Failure to follow the rules will result in your Vinylmint account being suspended or possibly closed forever.
