Question

neocyber_16    0

I wanted to add simple music to my Blog (nothing fancy) so i went to google to research this and i came upon this site - http://spaces.msn.com/members/mike/Blog/cn...!3174.entry - which teaches you how to do it. Now i did the the url copy and paste and i got an MSN media available to my blog, now the problem is i wanted to upload some music but i used this website - http://www.yousendit.com/ - (as a server to host the file) and then i sent the file to myself and copied and pasted the url onto the music bar i just want to know is this legal? (because if it isn't then i'll stop)

Sharing copyrighted material is never (rarely) legal...so, no.

Is the music you are wanting to use copyrighted or not?

Surely if nobody is able to download the mp3 from your website, then it would be legal.

If however people are able to download the song from your website and play it later, then it would be illegal.

Well i understand that playing copyrighted music is illegal, however is it still considered illegal if the webiste is for private use? (family and friends, not availabe for public viewing), with a noted source from where and what it is, and is streaming audio so there is no direct downloading.

if the public can't see it I guess it really doesn't matter.

It may still be illegal, but how could anyone ever know?

You said it's for MSN spaces, which is public by nature. Sure you most likely won't get caught, but that doesn't make it any more legal.
