    Default What do you think about uploading tunes to youtube?

    Do you guys approve of people uploading tunes that aren't theirs onto youtube?

    I say this because I just uploaded a video/song to youtube, and then afterwards thought about the legality of such a thing. I mean, it's not my song, but it's in low quality. Though I did find the clipart for the "video" portion, and then threw some effects on. So it "could" be considered a soundtrack.

    Is this alright, or is it "against the rules" persay?

    I just uploaded:

    Wooo boy here we go......

    IMHO probably not the best idea. usually a soundtrack would go to a movie not really a clip slide show. though it is nice when im looking for a random song that i can usally find it on you tube. lol i would never use it in a set but nice to able to find new music this way. & since beatport only plays the main parts of tracks, i still like to hear the intro, for mixing purposes.

    The way I work:
    Browse for tunes at BeatPort and put the ones I like at hold.
    Then I look up the full tracks at youtube and if I like the whole track (and not just that little piece thats up on BP) I buy it, If the track is shit (except for those short 16 bars before the BP-preview ends) I dont buy it.
    In that way I dont waste my money on halfass tracks that wont get played.

    So personally, I love the people that upload the tracks to youtube.

    Yechnically it's against the rules and it's possible youtube will block the video.

    Yeah I mean it's in an entire "gray area" if you will.

    Personally, I use youtube to search around and FIND a lot of stuff that I probably wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. It's amazing just how following links will lead you to some crazy music.

    That being said, I totally understand if someone flags something for removal. I mean, it's all fair. But until that point, innocent until proven guilty if you will?

    I don't fully agree with hosting high quality audio on youtube. I like the fact that it's low quality, because it gives people a real reason to BUY the track rather than just rip it. Because everyone knows youtube audio quality sucks mostly.

    I imagine there are some people who just rip youtube audio and don't think anything of it. But those people? I doubt they would be buying shit anyhow, even if ripping stuff off youtube wasn't an option.
