hi, im considering signing up with dreamhost but i have few questions regarding the hosting. My questions are :

1. Is mp3 (music albums)hosting allowed on dreamhost registered domains?
2. Even if these albums have copyright restrictions on them?
3. If i am doing something wrong unknowingly, will i get a warning or my account will be cancelled imediately w/o 2nd chances?

Dude. Let me get this straight. You are asking what would happen if you "unknowingly" upload mp3 files ripped illegally from copyrighted albums? Er... that's a tough one. Let me think about it for a second and get back to you.

<second>...</second>

I've given it some thought, and I've come to the conclusion that you must be retarded.

No. Absolutely not. Your account will almost certainly be terminated, and you would most likely get a letter from the RIAA's lawyers.

Unless you actually had the rights to legally distribute the music, why do think it would be allowed?

You make a very valid point, sarawalliams. There is no problem hosting mp3s as long as you are the artist or have the express consent of the artist, provided they still have the rights to give. If they previously sold the rights to a recording company or something, then it's not allowed.

This post by munna explains why he's either a troll, or just really naive.

That wouldn't surprise me, given the behavior of the RIAA over the last few years, anything is possible Smile
