I am sure that one of the cases where filefront is just scared that they get sued, even when the chance is quite small. better dont.

For something as old as the Thunderbirds I'm pretty sure the sound effects are public domain. In fact I've never seen any copyright notice on sound effects excepting in the mod community where effects for a mod are created.

^Exactly. You're fine with ship voiceovers and weapon sounds, just not music unless its your own(as in you created yourself) ofcourse.

I guess all of you have read this already, but just to clarify this:

Star Trek: Armada 2, Star Trek: Armada 2 Downloads - The sky is falling!

That said, we have yet to receive a single takedown request for short clips, be they of music, tv shows, or even movies. Mods using sound effects from a movie/tv show/etc. are A-OK with us, as are fan-made music videos using clips from game cut scenes, shows, and the like. On the other hand, music copyright makes up the bulk of complaints we receive, so music mods which use copyrighted music are a big no-no. And let me just get this out of the way: don't be the smartass who uploads a bunch of music with the last 20 seconds cut off the end of each song. Don't be that guy. That guy sucks.

I know this has turned into a minni mess over on BC. One good thing came out of it though. I learned about Paramounts fair use policy on all thing that fall under the Star Trek Copyright. As I understand it allow for the use of short video and audio clips from trek. So that put hero ships back on the can do list:D

Bad news Starfox, I think the BBC owns the "rights" to Thunderbirds. Gerry Anderson, (or who/what ever) sold the rights to the BBC. (Even the film, the origional one)

Yes but this stuff is considered a cultural icon; and these things to a certain extent are public domain becuse of that. Not saying it invaladates a copy right. Just that like star trek there should be bit of fair use leway here.
