    Not if it's under copyright. You only "bought" the right to play it for your own use, not the use of your web site's visitors.

    The real question is: "will someone come after me if I put this Spice Girls song on my website?" It's unlikely, but these forums do not condone any illegal activities.

    I believe you can use a song as long as it's under 60 seconds. Anything after a minute is consider as an act of infringing the copyrights.

    Be careful with giving this advice. Some refer to the 60-second rule as "fair use," but the RIAA has said that "any use" is wrong in their eyes.
