MPEG Layer-3 Music

What is MP3?

MP3, or MPEG Layer 3, allows for CD-quality sound files at very high compression. Compared to .wav files, MP3 require approximately 1/20th of the space for the same quality of sound. Because of these characteristics, MP3 has become a widely accepted, standard setting file format for encoding music. Real Web Host allows clients to have MP3 files on their accounts. However, MP3s must not infringe on anyone's copyrights. While MP3s have become very popular, they have also been abused by persons by means of music piracy. Please ensure that any MP3s on your account have encoded content owned by you or your organization.

Does Real Web Host allow MP3 files?

Yes, as long as the encoded content does not infringe upon anyone else's copyrights.

Can I use my Anonymous FTP account for direct MP3 downloads?

Yes, as long as the MP3s are in accordance with our Acceptable Uses Policy. In short, your account cannot be used for the primary purpose of file distribution, including MP3 distribution. MP3s available for download may not be copyrighted, except by the owner of the site.

Can I have an MP3 distribution website?

Yes as long as the owner of said material gives written authorization. Exception: Also if the copyright for the MP3 is held by the owner of the virtual domain hosted on Real Web Host web servers.

Does Real Web Host recommend MP3 files over Real Audio?

We recommend Real Audio over MP3 for encoded applications for the following reasons: Real Audio will stream and therefore play immediately. MP3 files will have to be downloaded first, which could mean a 30 minute delay. Overall, Real Audio files (G2) are smaller and have a better quality than the same content encoded in MP3 format. Real Audio allows the client to have much more control of the delivery of the content, where MP3 files are nearly impossible to manipulate by the client

Can I have copyrighted MP3s on my account if I have written permission?

Yes as long as the owner of said material gives written authorization. Exception: Also if the copyright for the MP3 is held by the owner of the virtual domain hosted on Real Web Host web servers.
