Recently, I have recorded several poems on the above-named website to use as links here. The site is free and very simple to use and an excallent way to store audio on the internet.

A guardian angel, however, has recently pointed out a clause in the terms;

" 3. By uploading a file, a user does so on the condition that they are relinquishing their rights to the file to Dump.com. Dump.com may modify, submit, use or share a file at its own discretion without any financial compensation to the user."

I'm not positive what that means. it's hard for me to believe that one could lose all rights to one's work simply by placing them there, although that's what can be read in it. I've sent e-mails requesting clarification and will, hopefully, hear from them.

Anyway, for those considering using that site, take these terms into consideration.

I confess I am a little concerned because I placed my song on there which is due to be released in the near future. Also, once you place something on there, you do not have the power to delete it....bummer.

Well - That's not nice of them...

It was nice hearing all of your works in your own wondeful voice again too - I hope this works out and your song isn't affected...

Me too   Oh I sure would want clarification of those terms for sure!  It's a good thing you saw it before you loaded many more on there.  Darn, they are sure enjoyed by so many now that you recorded them that way too.  Hope it works out.

Balladeer, nothing is free.  There's always a string attached somewhere.

Can you dump them?! Mike, I'd sure be contacting an attorney asap over this clause.
Good luck!

Gosh, I didn't know you were a singer, but now I do...lol.  I'd be a little concerned, too.  Thanks for the info, Deer & Happy New Year to you and yours!   ....jo

Oh yes, those nasty terms, written in those very small letters, mostly hard to find. You'll see them in many 'free' Photo sites too.
Really hope you can save your recordings Deer

And in future, when it says 'free', start looking for the traps, because they're there for sure.

Come here pal, let me knuffel you and hope for the best.

Well, I got this reply:

Please provide the URLs of the files you have uploaded and they will be removed.

I would have preferred an explanation of the terms but, at least, it appears I can take the song off. The regular poems don't really matter.

At least they responded......

But that means we wouldn't be able to listen to it anymore. Mmmm....I'll just wait for de cd then

Thanks for taking this to the next step and letting us know what you learned. I'm still looking for a site that doesn't have those conditions.

Love,
Your Guardian Angel

May this new year be a joyful one for you and your loved ones!

I have placed my music on garageband.com and on myspace.com with no such restrictions.
