Trying to upload my first bit of music on UG. I'm told i'm not allowed to upload copyrighted music, does this include covers? I was confused because covers was an option. Does it just mean I can't take the artists original MP3 and upload that, but I can upload my own?

Yes, you can upload covers, since the recording is what's copyrighted, not the music.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The artist owns the copyright on the melody etc.

I don't know actually, some of my YouTube videos have been taken down for copyright infringement even though they were my covers... maybe it's different here, I don't know. I wasn't making any money

If you do you'll automatically get arrested by the police, and get taken to jail. REAL ASSPOUNDING JAIL.

There's also something about a salad involved

You can get arrested for talking about covering a song.

TS is so busted


We don't even know how bad the charge is going to be. I mean, how many covers has he done before? According to copyright infringement laws, it's... What was it... 5 years per song infringed?

I've decided to make this joke way too late after just noticing OP's username



Sir, I'm afraid you're going to have to come with me since you uploaded a cover of Hey There Delilah

Holy shit guys come quick it's Steve Vai!


Hey Pagan, Steve Vai here, I really enjoy your posts. It's posts like yours that make me want to continue inserting myself in the average user's life. Don't blow my cover next time though

Lots of that can be taken the wrong way.

Wouldn't be surprised if you got lethally injected, TS.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

What are you talking about? That's the bare minimum. Im truly afraid for TS's safety.

Well if it's 9000 years or lethal injection, I'll take the shot and get buried already. No sense in leaving my corpse laying around a jail cell just to prove a point.
