    Yup, unless they are original songs that you have written, you're probably looking for trouble selling copies of copyrighted music - whether in midi or any other format. Over the past few years many MIDI websites have been closed due to copyright infringements, and you could end up getting sued.

    If you can get hold of the music rights people in your country, you may be able to do it legally by paying some sort of royalty fee - if its for a yearbook there may even be some special rate that you could organise. Try to email ASCAP or the Harry Fox Agency.
