Question about local files?

Question about local files?

I just signed up, but there are some songs I want to listen to that aren't available on Spotify. Most of these songs are Japanese and therefore foreign which is probably why they aren't available. So, I can just upload them, right? But what about copyright? I want to upload some songs that are admittedly copyright protected such as Mariya Takeuchi's music. If I were to upload these songs so that I may listen to them, would I get in trouble? Would my account be terminated? I also want to upload "remixes" of copyrighted songs like Wii Shop Bling (a mashup of Hotline Bling by Drake and the Wii Shop channel music). What about these?

Hey @OhMightyMangoes, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!


If you have bought the tracks there should be no problem.

You can find more here.

Hope it helps! 🙂

Some of them can't be bought like the Drake x Wii Shop Channel mashup meaning I'm downloading them from YouTube using a converter. Do you think that would be against the rules?
