I posted last week about a new music site called Mucelli. It seems like a great site, but I had questions about how appropriately they were handling copyright issues. I emailed them about it, but still haven’t heard back from them.
In the meantime, I learned about a similar site called Deezer. Like Mucelli, it has tons of free songs, and you can create your own playlist. I found many of the songs I use in class to help teach English available on the site.
After searching around the web for more information about Deezer, I learned that it appears that their site is legal because they share advertising revenue with the recording artists.
If this is indeed the case, it certainly would be an easy way for ESL/EFL teachers who use music in their lessons to access the songs.
Please let me know if I’m missing something related to copyright issues.
