    Hey Guys,
    If I post music online for only listining (no downloading), will it be illegal. Visitors are only listening not downloading.
    HAAAAALP! :confused2

    royalties have to be paid to artist's even if you stream you might get away with it but i wouldn't like to risk getting into a legal battle.

    Technically, the copywrite holder can request that you remove it, I think.

    I think it depends which country you live in... russia for example has really loose copyright stuff and so you can do whatever without being prosecuted, but i dunno about many other countries/

    Copyright law extends worldwide. I don't know about Russian law, but if you have a Russian site, liability would extend to the country where the infringement occured.

    Yeah, sure, copyright sucks, but look at the case from the others POV. Would you like someone to use your stuff and not paying for it, when you are supposed to get money for it..?
    I know I'd go into an insane killing spree, slaughtering everyone who got in my way.

    Also, you might not get caught. The net is big, and they will have problems catching everyone. ;)

    Hi everyone,

    If you have music (wether it is audio or midi, it makes no difference) on your website for downloading, you'll need a mechanical lisence. In this case you pay royalties for every single copy you make (= for every download).

    If you only make the music available to listen to (possible with a flash player, but as far as I know only for audio, not midi), you need a performance lisence. You pay a certain amount every year.

    It's obvious that if you use other people's work, you pay them for their work.

    Kind regards,
