For the most part all I record and put on the web are just covers.. but I have come to a slow down on doing so because of Copyright Protection laws that are in place.. which I really think need to be re-addressed. I shouldn't have to pay some billion dollar record company to record a song that I am not making any money on at all.
If my songs were out there and under copyright.. The only time I would go out and charge people with stealing is when they are attempting to turn a profit on it.
Thats my views on that lol got a little off topic
As long as you aren't making money, you're okay, man. You're protected. You're allowed to cover them, you just can't make any money on the videos/songs at all.
