Rights clarification :
Note : this applies to tracks written and recorded by myself. This doesn't apply by default to covers I've made, works that have been created with other people, or works that
have not been released by myself.
When you download music from my site, you are allowed to convert it to other formats, store it on whatever media you want, create copies of it, and share them with your friends, within reason.
I'd appreciate the following :
1. If you upload my works to other sites for whatever reason, do mention that the originals were gotten from me (or my site) and were free to begin with, and provide a link to my site.
2. If you provide my works to others in any way, that you do not charge for it, or make no money from doing so.
Things I'd rather see not happen at all :
1. Use of my works (partial or full) as parts of other works, without getting my permission first. Covers, parodies and such are perfectly fine. Use of unedited tracks combined with
imagery (for on youtube for instance) is fine, as long as you mention my website as source of the audio, and as long as you're not making money from this.
2. Selling my works without my permission, or claiming them as your own (this is illegal in many countries to begin with).
Copyrights are generally a tool to restrict what users can do with creative works, and to extract money from those people. This is contrary to what I'm trying to achieve : to make access
and non-commercial use of my works easy and free.
However, my works are not in the public domain.
