I have questions


#1

Dear All.

Q1. Is it allowed to upload and download mp3 or wma files?? That files are Japanese Animation music include opening and ending theme. I can explain its copyright.

Q2. Is it still available to discount a charge by using promo code?

  1. You can host it as long as it’s legal.
  2. If this is your first time to sign up, any of the promo codes you find here on the forums will work for you. It’s only renewals where you can’t use a code. Well, plus it’s against the TOS to sign up for a new account and move your sites to it.

If you have something that you know is ok/legal, but think it might not be obvious, you might want to read through this post where Karl from Dreamhost recommends leaving a file in the directory for DH that explains things.

So copyrighted files are allowed? If i upload a copyrighted file then DH can’t understand is it legal or not wheather it was created by me or by vendors.

You can’t violate the copyright of others. It’s to avoid confusion with something that is definitely 100% legal for you to be doing, but where it might not be clear to Dreamhost.

Basically, explaining something up front with that file might prevent you from having to explain while asking to have your account re-activated if they shut it down.

Copyrighted files would be allowed as long as you have permission to distribute them.

Ok,if i want to upload a (copyrighted by me) midi tone of a song then its not possible to get permission from the singer or any other who can permit me. Or if i just make a mp3 tone myself and don’t want others to distribute it,so i’ll make it as copyrighted. Then will it be a violation?

If you are saying that you have created a MIDI file (or an mp3 file) from a piece of copyrighted work without first seeking permission from the copyright holder, you would be in violation of both DreamHost’s Terms Of Service and copyright law concerning derivative work.

Question 2

If you make a midi or mp3 that is an intentional copy of an original that breaks copyright even if you recorded it yourself, if you make something that is the same by coincidence it doesn’t. In this case you could argue that point.

What?

If you try that approach, you will lose. Copyright lawyers aren’t stupid, you know.

I think a lot of musicians that have been sued for millions of dollars would disagree with that.

I doubt anyone has won a plagiarism case with the coincidence defense either. :stuck_out_tongue:

Well thats the theory, in court each party would have to prove their right to the copyright, if you can prove you never copied it outright you have rights to it the problem is how do you prove you have never seen or heard something before.

Obviously the original artist would have the greater chance of winning the case.

Actually, when you find yourself in court, count on losing because it probably means you have already been nicely warned and ignored it.

If someone is taking you to court for a copyright violation, count on them having plenty of money, lawyers and evidence to win.

Wrong again.

You shouldn’t be passing “play dumb” off as legal advice.

You can’t and it wouldn’t matter if you could, because you would still be in the wrong.

Good guess.

And you do realize, you don’t just get to tell the judge, “Oops, sorry about that. I thought playing dumb was a legal loophole.” After you’ve heard the shocking news that you lost, you’ll probably get more great news about how you’re going to pay for any damages claimed, plus the winner’s legal expenses.

Actually, that’s not entirely true.
You could always claim insanity!
Insanity = instant win

:stuck_out_tongue:


#17

Not to mention, if you don’t like the judge’s decision, you could always kill him and claim that you never read a law that said you couldn’t go around killing people.

Then, by claiming to be unaware of such law, you could claim all rights to it and sue anyone that tries to enforce it by arresting you. :stuck_out_tongue:
