Copyright Issues

I posted a question before doing my first live stream a few days ago here: I knew Concert Window pays royalties and comply with ASCAP/BMI/SESAC licensing rights and I filled out a set list after I finished my broadcast. I started to create a highlight video but there's a message next to my video reading: "Trim the video to feature your favorite song from this show. Make sure you own the rights and it is NOT a cover song. We'll feature it on our highlights page as a way for new fans to discover you. Simply set a beginning and end time in the two text fields below and click Create video." So, I have an agent in the FAQ section telling me I can post my cover songs online as long as it's not for commercial use, and then your site tells me I can't post cover songs. I'm confused... Is the answer yes or no or both....?

Hi Jeremy,

Sorry for the confusion. Our agent actually answered your last question in the forum incorrectly. Please accept our apologies. We do cover the licensing for live streams but to post to youtube it either needs to be public domain or you need to own the licensing yourself. Does that make sense? Again, sorry for the confusion.

Yes, that answers it for me. Thanks for clarifying!
~ Merry Christmas! ~ :)
