    Hello, my friend is a bedroom DJ. He purchases all his MP3s legally from legal download sites. He uses these purchased tracks in his mixes which are usually 70-80 mins long. He then uploads them to his webspace and puts links to them on various trance DJ forums. My question is...is he breaking any copyright laws?...because his host has shut him down telling him that his mixes are breaking copyright laws.

    All help would be appreciated

    Thanks Colin

    if tey are your mp3's email his ISP and say that you have greanted permission for him to use them.

    if he jsut bought them off the ent somewhere then yes he is unless he gets written permission form the creator.
