Must be you, they're just standard MP3 files and a WMV file and I can play them. Drag them into VLC, that'll play them.

Can someone actually explain the background over links to library tracks? I think there was a post about it but I can't seem to find it.

Many of the libraries are now on Spotify and pretty much every library have all their tracks open to listening without logging in, so I'm at a loss to see what the big fuss is about. If a library didn't want you hearing, they'd put everything behind a login for professional media users.

Surely posting links to tracks that were never publicly released and/or bespoke commissions for television productions is more an infringement than just providing a weblink to a publicly available website?

I get that, but:

Quote:
If library music is exchanged here, on TV Forum, there is a danger that a company without an MCPS licence may attempt to use the file without paying for it's use. The file would then be in the public arena for many others to abuse, and the composer would not get paid for his track being used.


The file is already in the public arena anyway - as pretty much all production music libraries are open to anyone to listen to.

From a professional point of view, and of someone who licenses production and commercial music on a daily basis, I'd be more concerned over non-released material being linked and shared than something which you can listen to on an open site.
