When is it ok to download, rip, stream, copy, distribute, or perform art, music, or scholarship created by others? What happens if you do something that’s not OK? What about your own creations?

We can’t give you legal advice, but we can point you to guides that will help you thread your way through the U.S. Copyright landscape.
