Forget your superstar showcase, trinket schemes, ipad apps, improvements to the recorder or contests..this is the most exciting development I've seen on Singsnap and I think it will see the site have a massive resurgence in 2017 and deservedly so too well done all xsingerlad

Agreed

I'm still confused about the licensing stuff. If songs were taken away because of Licensing issues, how can they now be uploaded and still be legal? For example, we don't have the Eagles or Chicago. So now their songs can be uploaded and recorded legally?singingsister57

Well, I don't often quote myself, but this is important to me. hehe I've been telling people that the reason SS has taken away many artists' songs has nothing to do with Trevor not wanting to pay the money to get those tracks. It is because they just aren't available to be purchased. I still believe that. I'm just confused as to how members can then upload songs by artists that SS has removed due to licensing issues.

For those who do upload please be careful to get the song and artist right and do not double the artist name. Makes it confusing especially when searching. Make it clear and clean and no doubling on the artist names. Thank you.

Let's see if I understand this correctly...

1. My wife and I wrote and recorded a Christmas song. We own the copyright.

This means I can upload my backing track of our original song. Is this correct?

2. My wife and I own many karaoke CDs purchased over time. We do not own the copyright to any of the original songs, but we legally purchased the karaoke versions.

This means I can upload any and all of these karaoke tracks - even those which are licensed here in the United States. Is this correct?

3. I downloaded a karaoke track from YouTube. I do not own the copyright to the original song, and I did not purchase this track.

This means I can NOT upload this track to Singsnap. Is this correct?neodrew

1. Yes, that is correct.

2 & 3. SingSnap does not permit copyright infringement; nor does it provide Copyright or legal advice to it's members. Fair use and private copying laws often permit consumers to transfer their lawfully acquired sound recordings but we can't provide legal advice on each song. Any concerned rights holders can find our copyright policy here. Only the copyright holder of any specific musical work has the right to register a complaint. The law is such that there is no ability for a third party to register a copyright complaint.Rob

Sorry. I read that when it was posted, but it doesn't clear it up for me. It's making it sound like you still can't upload songs that have been removed from SingSnap because of licensing issues, but people have already uploaded them.

Reply by Dippin_DotsGOLD

That is so cool. Maybe hopefully some songs be it original or ones that were purchased and uploaded will be ones that some wanted to sing or had wished SS had in their library they wanted but wasn't available and then in time they can sing along with the uploaded versions.

Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year too in advance!

Sure, you could post a request list in the new Community Songbook category of the message board. If another member has the song they can upload it for you.

You can use whichever you prefer or upload both versions. It's generally best to avoid uploading songs with lead vocals though.

This all seems so exciting and innovative but I don't own any karaoke discs nor have downloaded any karaoke tracks, so I can't use this new feature to contribute to the songbook, unless I purchase discs and / or downloads. If I purchase music to upload on the SS site then not only am I paying for the music, but also paying for my Gold membership. It's something I'll have to look into and I assume any Gold member can sing any uploaded song in the Community Songbook? For me, who's not very technical, it's a bit too daunting.........

I'm confused .. trojan55

I was confused Rich , we need had downloaded some of our songs recorded in our pc or I am a donkey , I haven't downloaded any of them and haven't clue how.... anyway I don't use any program to download music .... __Angels__

You could buy a karaoke backing track from say Zoom.... since you need to have legally purchased the backing track to upload or own the copyright , after you buy ('i used paypal' ) they download straight to your computer then you can upload that track to SS using the new community songbook tool under 'account' called 'manage songbook'ConnieG

Thanks ConnieG, remember that program but I cant afford it .Thanks again for your help!!__Angels__

Is not a program s a website you can buy a backing track for as little as £1.99 each not sure what that is in dollarsConnieG

Yes you are right , sorry its a website and each track cost in dollars : 2,50 ..... maybe for many aren't nothing but yes for me that: Singsnap Gold Membership costs :Monthly

This is very frustrating. I must be stupid. I've read and re-read this. It's like sending an email to support on some other site and getting a form letter that may or may not answer questions. lol I've been telling people who tell me about another site having songs what we don't that Trevor has said that if other sites have songs we have pulled then they have them illegally. Then someone said they let members upload their own tracks and those might be licensing restricted so they are illegal. I don't know the difference of what is being done here.

Don't get me wrong. This is an amazing feature and really going to enhance the fun on the site. I just have talked to so many people in support of why SS pulled the songs that other sites have and have said I admire SS for doing things "by the book" so to speak. And I know that you will continue to do things the legal way. If someone could PLEASE just explain that paragraph such as who is the third party etc.
