I wanted to upload a cover of PUMPED UP KICKS played on my guitar. It said that you can't use copywrited music so does that mean that you can't upload the actual ORIGINAL song or you can only upload original music written by you? Sorry I know this sounds stupid, but i need to know
a cover is a cover
You can post a cover. You can't post something that has been written and performed by someone else, but I don't know why you'd want to do that anyway.
