Can I make music site?

Can I make music (mp3s) site? The songs will not be here, only links will be there.
Bockman
As stated in the ToS:

Quote:
C) Hosting rules
Any of the following is strictly not allowed, unless stated otherwise.

5. Hosting, linking and content related to warez, mp3's and all other illegal files.



Now, depending of the kind of mp3 files you want to link to, we may or may not give you permission to link to them.
What kind of music are you referring to? your own music, created by you?

No, the music I mentioned to host in my site are not made by me. They are different popular or vintage mp3s, sang by different world famous singers. But, as you have clearly mentioned in your reply that you cannot give permission of link to mp3 files. So, I think I should not go for it and should try to plan a 'who am I' like site. But, in case you think otherwise and can give me permission, then please let me know. Till then I have to give up my idea of music site because I don't want to violate the rules.

Correct me if i'm wrong:

Unless you created the songs, you can't put other peoples songs on your website.

I somewhere read earlier that there is no certain law regarding mp3. This file type cannot be included in the law regarding copyrighted music, otherwise there cannot be so much mp3 sites out there and above all Windows Media Player (owned and created by Microsoft) cannot have a feature called 'Rip' which has the facility to rip music in mp3 format from an audio cd. Cool If mp3 is illegal, then the softwares to make mp3 are also illegal. Then, from Lame, Fraunhopher to Microsoft all are doing illegal work. Confused

You stand corrected. (meaning, yes, you're wrong.)

First of all, i don't know how the law stands on your country, but on the US the law has been defined for all formats.

But even if it weren't, our own ToS states it very clearly.

As for the format converters you were mentioning, most of them already have protections so they don't rip protected CD's. And that function is there to allow you to convert music in a legal fashion (yes, there is such a thing).
