[linux-audio-user] Legalities

Anyone know much about the legalities of posting music recorded by 
oneself, but written by someone else? I put up a few recordings on my 
web site, mostly as a demo of MMA ... but I got to wondering the other 
day if some nice lawyer is going to be knocking on my door? I'm not too 
worried since I do live in Canada, and the server is <somewhere in 
Europe>. But, still ... one has to wonder.

In my case, I didn't write the music. But, I'm the "artist" (and 
recording engineer, etc.). And, I'm not selling anything. And, they are 
just demos.

So, should I worry? Should I take them down?
