Where to find live midi sites
Like popular cars, MIDI file sites come, MIDI file sites go, usually
as a result of copyright issues. Some sites offer blatant rip-offs,
some have their own material which they are happy to share under
certain restrictions, some offer genuinely public domain material.
There is criminal fringe, however, that rip off files that are
copyrighted by other people and offer them for sale; but then the
world as a whole contains a percentage of scammers and cheats, and
the Web is not their only hunting ground. In particular, it is as
well to be aware of the above points when searching for files that
you want to use on websites, YouTube videos or other promotional
material. Generally speaking, if the site asks for payment in any
other way than PayPal or credit card you should be very suspicious,
if it has a proper shopping cart with payments accepted by a trusted
third party then there is more chance that it is legitimate but
there is still no cast iron guarantee.
Just to change the subject for a moment: a lot of younger people in particular have picked up the odd driving conviction and found that their car insurance premiums have shot up. This is because price comparison sites are designed for the majority of motorists who don't have accident or convictions to report.
This is not a real problem; insurance brokers can often find cheaper insurance quotes for those with the odd driving conviction or even those with drink-drive offences so if you have fallen foul of the police it may be worth while visiting this convicted driver car insurance website.
OK that's the commercial over (it's a good site and worth visiting though). We have attempted and continue to attempt to produce an up-to-date
list of legitimate websites. This is an ongoing project and from
time to time we come across a site which is no longer maintained or
which is obviously best to avoid and we delete the links to these.
If you come across any such sites or you feel that any of them are
breaching your own copyright in any way please let us know and if we
are satisfied that the link to the site should be taken down we will
do so within a reasonable time. We cannot, however, police the
entire Internet; even the mighty Google has admitted the same thing.
If you feel that your site
should be on our list too, then please drop us an email and we'll
take a look at it.
Do bear in mind that even if a site allows you to download a MIDI
file that they own the copyright on you cannot, in the vast majority
of cases, just do whatever you wish with it; there will almost
certainly be restrictions imposed by the copyright owner and people
who breach these restrictions can be, and often are, prosecuted. It
may sound Draconian that we are pointing this out but although we
would be in favour of more relaxed copyright laws they are what they
are, and a lot of artistes and other music producers try very hard
to see that they are enforced.
