Default Is it all right to post links to albums in Mp3 format?

Yeah, just wondering. I'm doing Mp3 copies of some albums I own and thought I'd share... if I can.

This has been coming up more often recently. I'll repost what I stated earlier:

We've made the decision not to promote the trading of digital copies of game albums on VGMdb, primarily because we want this site to be as professional as we can make it, and we certainly envision a time when even game music composers use it for reference (we know of at least one who already has.)
Maybe I should put up a sticky thread somewhere.

There are plenty of other sites that allow mp3 trading anyway.

Yeah, we really should not be promoting illegal soundtrack trading. Of course, I'd love you all to grab all the freely released digital albums listed in the database. There's probably about 150 in there. :-)

That's one thing I was wondering about. Can we have links to download explicitly free albums on the DB pages?

Yeah, you can add them. I'm going to add description fields for all links soon. And maybe date fields.
