Draft:Drifting Sun[edit]

DriftingSunWeb claims to be in the band that the article is about. I don't know if that changes anything, but just thought you would like to know this. Perhaps the speedy deletion should be changed to regular deletion while this discussion goes on. PointsofNoReturn (talk) 21:38, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Whpq

Thank you for your message. Now I understand what is required and why the article was not accepted, sorry for taking so long, I was just struggling with the rules.

Ok, I have now removed the direct links to the Drifting Sun website and any link that isn't from independent sources, thus have left only articles and reviews about the band from magazines etc. I will also edit the info to keep it 100% unbiased.

My first 2 albums were initially copyright by SACEM (France), which is where I am from originally, and I have recently protected my entire catalogue with Copyright House (through digital copyright) earlier this year. Regarding the SACEM protection, I can only show you prints of the certificates for the songs, as they are only viewable online by me when I log in to my access area and they don't point to a specific link that can be opened by anyone else (although I can provide you with the catalogue numbers related to the songs). With the more recent Copyright House protection, I do have specific URLs pointing to each song, showing both my real name and my artist name, along with the name of the band, the song title, the registration ID and date, and the security code. Would you like me to paste some URLs relating to a few songs from each album?

Kind regards

With regards to copyright, the issue is that the wording of the article is taken directly from the band's website. It has nothing to do with the copyright registration of your songs. Regards. -- Whpq (talk) 12:45, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
