    Post music without copyright
    OK I live in U.S and I want to make forum about Asian music which I want to share music with other people. But I dun no if it that legal for me to put sharing music with other people ? Or what happen if someone else wants to share their music there I just open the forum and didn't post any music. By the way I have see a few forum are already doing this. Just wondering what is the chance I get caught and do I go to jail for that?
