I was just wondering, is it illegal for me to upload a few songs for personal use to my website (not albums. Around 10-15 songs)? Would I get in trouble?

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

If they are the full length songs then I think you cant do that, However, if they are samples of the song such as 30 seconds of the songs then I think that is allowed...

Are you wanting to upload them to listen to when your not at your computer?

Hmmm...it is possible but since it is going to be on display to the public then that would be infringing copyright...which isn't a good thing.

Why don't you see if you can get a hold of an MP3 player to put your songs on...


EDIT - If the songs are your own work then it will be fine to put them on your site, however if they are other artists songs then if you do upload them to be listened to then you will be infringing copyright...

Okay, thanks. I didn't think it would be legal (not much is now tbh =P), but I thought I'd check anyway.

No problem...Its good that you've asked about it...many people just forget about copyright.

Being in a course to do with Multimedia Computing in college, copyright is a very big issue...

If you need any more help then just post here... :whistling:
