Uploading music - Youtube - Terms?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the terms are for uploading music to Youtube that you DID NOT compose/make? For example, let's say I wanted to start a Youtube channel completely based off of the Indie music genre. That being said, am I allowed to upload music tracks of various artists in that genre? A few examples of bands would be The Decemberists, Metric, Spoon, etc. So again, would I be allowed to upload various songs on Youtube from these artist's or is it completely illegal on Youtube? I wouldn't see why not since I see these famous songs uploaded on there with more than 100,000 hits and the uploader being just some random person...

Thanks all!

lol if you are just uploading the songs themselves then no you cannot do that. just because other people havent been caught or had action taken against them yet doesnt mean it's ok. otherwise http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use

That said, no one will give that much of a fuck if you upload music.

At worst, you'll just have the videos removed, like, three years from now.
