    [EN] Dear members and friends of ipernity! Recently it was brought to our attention that uploading of music clips violated copyright laws. While German copyright laws are very strict and consist of no “fair use” doctrine, the copyright laws of most of the world do permit this doctrine for educational and non-commercial purposes.

Today, 1 July, we went through all the steps required to upda…
