quintin, with any music, you need to get permission from the artists before hosting it. I know it's a grey area with game mixes because they often didn't have the permission of the original composers. However, this is more a separate issue regarding derivative works.

With OCR, the remix artists give permission to the site owner (djp) to host their works. Regardless of what zircon or Liontamer may have said (though I find these claims questionable), djp runs OCR. Unless you have his consent or the consent of the individual artists who created each track, you should not be hosting the music. Doing so will make you run into a lot of opposition, including with the staff here at VGMdb.
