Copyright problems, Youtube embedding disabled

Post by 12bar » Sun Jun 10, 2012 9:14 pm


I just got an email from MajorSinnerRecords that a fellow 12bar member offered by mistake a copyrighted backing track from Youtube here for download.

To avoid trouble please don't do this again - no downloads for third party songs or backing tracks.

I've deleted the thread. Please control your posts and delete any copyrighted BT's from this or other sites.

Due to the recent judgments about linking to Youtube videos which violate copyrights I'm changing some of the link types.
Rather than embedding the Youtube player (or soundclick or...) the tags will generate a link to the page using an anonymous referrer.
Legally speaking I'm not offering direct links anymore.

I don't like this at all, but it's the only way to protect myself against expensive lawsuits, which would ruin me and my family.
