There are generally three separate copyrights that attach to a sound recording: a copyright in the lyrics, a copyright in the tune, and a copyright in the recording itself. In order to post a recording, each of these rights must either be owned by you, licensed by you in such a way that permits you to post the tune, or be in the public domain.
The supervisors of the Zemirot Database may remove any content that appears not to fit the above criteria. The supervisors will also respond promptly to requests to take down material, which may be made pursuant to our Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy. The DMCA Policy describes the information that must be included in takedown notices as well as the response of the Zemirot Database to takedown notices.
