IV Laws governing the quotation/citation of music

Image Your audio quotations in WMA format, no bigger than 500 KB, that is approximately 30 seconds, are authorized on all the forums.
Messages containing audio quotations necessarily have to contain the following legal notices: name of the composer, the title and the editor of the work.

If your extract is taken from a CD, it is also compulsory to include the names of the performer(s) and the publisher of the CD.
Messages not fulfilling this legal requirement will be removed. For a score, you can attach a copy of a few measures of the work as a JPG. Messages containing quotations of scores are obliged to contain the following: composer's name, title and publisher. Your scores in JPG, maximum size of 140 KB, are authorized on the forum "Guitar Classes". The images must not exceed a width of 1200 pixels and a height of 3000 pixels.

How to convert your audio recordings to WMA for extracts.
You can use the free program 'dBpowerAMP Music Converter' for Windows. First, download the converter at
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/
then install the free version. You do not need the trial version to make the conversions that interest us.
Then you download the "Windows Media Audio" that corresponds to your own Windows software, at
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm
then you install it, start up your computer and your converter is then ready to go. Then launch the dBpowerAMP Music Converter software, select a WAV or MP3 file of maximum 30 seconds and convert it to WMA, ensuring that the resultant size is no greater than 500 KB.
The WMA file format has been chosen for extracts because statistics indicate that 95% among you are Windows users compared with 3% using Macs and 1.2% using Linux.

IVa Audio samples
Members may post short audio files to demonstrate the sound of, or compare the sound between, different guitars, microphones, recording equipment, etc.
These files must be in WAV format at a sample rate of 44,100Hz, no bigger than 2.5 MB in size, and no more than 15 seconds in length. They are authorized in the "Classical guitar recording and amplification" forum and in the top level of the "Luthiers, Classical Guitar Makers" forum.

Where an audio sample is part of a piece of music, the message must contain the following details: the name of the composer, the title and, if the piece is copyrighted, the name of the publisher.

If the sample is taken from a CD, it is also compulsory to include the names of the performer(s) and the publisher of the CD.

Messages not fulfilling this legal requirement will be removed.
