Well....They have that on ***********, and it didn't work at first, so it might take a while.

As always, well said Bonsai. Will Justin take probably 5 hours trying to get a hold of Miley Cyrus or the Jonas brothers? And how about Rihanna and the other artists members are listing? that would take almost weeks getting a hold of all of the artists that members just love. Also, these celebs are barely at home. They are probably out signing autographs or photo shoots. They don't have time to be called from a webkinz website. And if we take the music without premission, the artist might just sue Justin or Wendy. And even if the founders do this, then the mods and admins have to go over every song. Its just as hard for the staff.

So I have to disagree. Sorry.

In reality though, it wouldn't even be possible. In order to put a song on the site, the artist would have to give WI permission to use it. Copyright/trademark laws and all that jazz. The reason that sites like MySpace are able to have profile songs is that the artists or their agents sign up, upload the music, and give MySpace permission for it to be added to profile pages. If a site just puts songs up without permission, the artist can sue them over it, and require that royalties be paid for every time that the song was paid. Yikes.

Nevermind the censoring issues... even if we could get the artists to release WI from having to pay royalties, a mod/admin would have to manually go through every single song and listen for swears or inappropriate content. And then there would be a ton of strain on the servers as well. WI is a free site, and they don't have anywhere near the same advertising revenue as a site like MySpace. How would they be able to keep the site free, and still afford server upkeep, bandwith, storage space, etc? It just wouldn't be possible.


Good idea in theory, but it unfortunately wouldn't translate to reality too well. Thanks for sharing though!

I like the idea but,
- We would have to pick from a approved list, or send in the song to be approved
- Keep in mind not everyone has speakers
Overall, of course there would be a how-to for [someday] putting songs on our profiles, and basically, this is a good idea.

I think it's a great idea

There should only be some popular, yet clean artists allowed, such as Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers, SOME rock bands (such as Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, etc.) and the songs would have to be approved. I think it's a good idea because on profiles it gets sort of boring just looking at the effects, not being able to actually hear things, too! It would make everything a lot funner! It would also be cool if you could have a playlist! Like a few of your favorite songs in an order so when you finish one song, it goes to the next and so on.

That would be very cool!
Although.. a lot of popular teen songs these days are too explict to be playing on ths site. So if we could choose from a list, I would be very sastisfied!

You've got a good point.... but why would you have to call them to ask them if their music could be played on the site?? It doesn't really make sense.....

You wouldn't have to speak with the actual artist, but rather a lawyer, agent, record label, etc. I'm not in the music business, so I don't know the details as to how royalties and leases are handled. But basically, in plain English - every time a song is created, SOMEONE owns the rights to it. For a JoBros song, their record label probably owns it. Any and every time that song is played or made available, someone has to pay a fee (called a "royalty") to the owner of the song.

When you purchase a cd, or an mp3 fom itunes, you're paying for the right to use the song for your own, private, non-commercial purposes. You can play it as many times as you want. BUT if you burn a copy of that CD, or upload that MP3 to the internet, you are breaking the law, and stealing the music. Same if you download a CD from bittorrent, or soulseek, etc. Every time you obtain a copy of a song, you have to pay for it. Otherwise, the record label or artist can come after you for royalties.

No website can just use a song whenever they want. They either have to pay the artist (or record label) EVERY SINGLE TIME the song is played, or they can to obtain a lease for the song (a set fee that would allow them to play it for a set period of time,) orrrr they can sometimes get permission from the artist (record label) to use it for free.
