All those cover songs on youtube are in fact illegal, but most are removed instead of sued if they are even found at all. It isn't practical to sue everyone for just posting a song they like.

I doubt legal action would be taken, but maybe familiarize yourself with music copyright laws to be on the safe side. As long as you credit the original artist, I don't see what the problem would be other than pure, unadulterated greed. lol

Technically, no, its not illegal. By that logic whistling the tune or singing it at the party is also illegal. No one will take legal action against you (apart of course from Kiss and Metallica ). And yeah, just give them credit when you are posting your recording.

I mean, we have a cover recordings sub-forum... there's nothing illegal there!

I was under the impression that they were illegal because Youtube has ads that make money off of it.
