Chapter 24. Audio on the Web > Using Existing Audio

24.2. Using Existing Audio

The simplest way to add audio to a site is to use found music, sound effects, or other resources. But before you start featuring music and sound effects from your personal CD collection, it is important to be aware of copyright issues.

24.2.1. Copyright Restrictions

With few exceptions, it is illegal to reproduce, distribute, or broadcast a sound recording without the permission of the copyright owner. Copyright issues have been brought to the forefront with the growing popularity of MP3 distribution through Napster and other peer-to-peer networks, but they apply to all audio published on the Internet. To get permission, you usually need to pay licensing fees.
