I have a brand new website for easy sharing of music. The files are intended to be copyright free (home recordings, podcasts etc). The system though could easily be used for music which does have copyright on it.
My intention is to become licenced by PRS for Music or similar service. This would make transfer of copywritten music legal just in case some are uploaded. This would be a safety precaution.
Based on my research a licence allows a specific number of tracks to be download -- for example it may allow 2,000 copys of any track to be downloaded.
Let's assume that I end up having 10,000 downloads. Who would be responsible for working out what exactly has copyright on it? Me? Them? The copyright holders who want money?
I dont want to find myself a few years down the line being forced to check through thousands of music sets to find specific tracks (next to impossible). Who is responsable for tracking the copyright issues?
