More than once, I’ve felt the urge to post a song here for people to download. This is obviously illegal, and so far this has stopped me from doing so. In the interest of exploring available options, I’ll ask you, esteemed reader:
- When would it be technically legal, i.e. is there a specific bitrate at which it becomes okay?
- When would it be “legal enough” that it wouldn’t stop you from doing it, i.e. is it morally okay when also posting an iTunes or Amazon link?
I’m pondering writing a small neat Flash app that’s easy to embed, and plays an external mp3 when clicked. It would be nice to know when the use of it is legal and when it’s not. Let me know your thoughts.
