Hello there “Ski mask the Slump God”. I understand that you have a few concerns about the copyright laws. Copyright is the exclusive legal right to publish, perform, film, or record literary,artistic, or musical material, and to authorize others to do the same. The party who possesses the song is the copyright owner. Under a system of National Laws and International Copyright Treaties, the copyright owner has the "exclusive right" to perform, display, print, record, or otherwise reproduce the work in any way. Others can obtain permission to use someone's copyrighted work by receiving a License from the copyright owner or their authorized agents. The copyright laws have changed overtime.Before 1972, there was no copyright protection for sound recordings, at least not federal law. Since the age of digital streaming the rules surrounding copyright have changed quite a bit. On February 15, 1972, Congress passed a law letting the owners of the copyright have the exclusive right to reproduce and distribute the soundrecording, including by means of digital transmission, and to authorize others to do the same.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
