Some of you have been posting links to streaming versions of copyrighted music.

This is NOT acceptable.

Unless you have broadcast rights - and for the ease of enforcement we're going to operate under the relatively safe assumption that none of you do - it isILLEGAL to share copyrighted music via streaming audio.

Therefore, it's against NikeTalk rules.

[color= rgb(255, 255, 0)]This includes YouTube videos.[/color] Millionsof copyright violations occur on Youtube every day. Simply because something is on Youtube does NOT make it legal. Don't risk your membership by postinga streaming music video. Most are illegal and many contain profanity and slurs.

We will be BANNING those in violation of this policy. We're not going to face legal sanction from the RIAA because you're too cheap to spend $12 for aCD.
