Copyright Infringement Policy

What music can I share?

In general, you can only share music for which you own all of the rights or music which is no longer or has never been under copyright. A transcription or arrangement of someone else's copyrighted work does not qualify as original, regardless of how much it differs. If you do not own the rights to the composition, lyrics, and arrangement, you must obtain the copyright holder's permission in order to post the song. For more information, please visit www.copyright.gov/.
