Default Drum Covers accused of Copyright...

Hi i have been recording drum covers lately and did a cover of Santana-Smooth i uploaded it onto facebook with the music in the background with me drumming over it with a title just saying Santana-Smooth Drum Cover by Connor.

1 hour later it gets taken down for "Copyright Infrigment" any help on how i can get it back up there? Thanks

The first thing I would do is read Facebooks posting rules on copyrighted material. I'm sure they have something written. Then go from there.

I read them there not helpfull though... have to get permission from the record company to post it up or something... loads of people have drum covers with third party music on in the background and they seem to be fine. =/

Unless you have explicit permission from the copywrite holder, you can't.

It's a violation of federal law.

End of story.
