    I have just logged onto a blog that I started a few years ago and found it is still getting in excess of 1,000 views a day (with just under 500 visitors). It's been running on it's own for a good year or so and I think the fact it still has 1k views a day is pretty good. I am considering reviving it.

    The problem. The blog is simply a blog where I post links to free sheet music for piano, then people click the link which takes them to another website where they can print the sheet music.

    The sheet music that I link to is usually uploaded by random people so is usually infringing copyright laws (Because they have probably just uploaded a copy of the sheet music they found somewhere else, or that they have written without the permission of the artist).

    I am merely linking to these website and do not host sheet music on the blog. I was wondering if this is infringing copyright laws? I can't see why it would be illegal as I am simply posting links, but someone might know.

    I am not yet profiting from the blog, but I was thinking of maybe sticking a few adverts on it to see if it gets anything?
