One my acquaintance bassist has put a cover song of a famous metal band on Youtube (he plays bass in his rehearsal room on that video). And soon he has got a letter from Youtube administration, they said this cover is illegal.
So we see it is not legal to cover a song and put it on Youtube. But what with drum solo? For example, if I want to repeat solo of Thomas Haake, Dave Weckl or someone else and put it on Youtube - will it be illegal also or not?
Have you ever encountered with it?
