Hi! So I had an awesome idea. I am Christian and I wanted to maybe play Christian songs on my violin, but I realized that most of them were copyright. But then I also realized, there are so many things like MAPs on Scratch, and just background music in general! Is it ok for people to use music like that, even though they give credit? I’m pretty sure most MAPs have copyrighted music, and that’s illegal isn’t it? Also is there anything in the guidelines about Christianity? I know that politics are not supposed to on Scratch, and I understand why. But what about religion? I really want to know, and I would love answers!

Creative Commons license might protect it but dont quote me on that.

I think scratch is under some sort of educational institue license that means that you're allowed to use copyrighted works unlesss the company wants it taken down. If you're playing the songs that sounds totally fine!
In fact will you give me the link on my profile once you make it? That sounds super cool!

as for religion, so long as you dont trash talk other religions or force your own on people, you can express your beliefs in a way that doesnt offend people.
Ok thanks! I mean I’m definitely not gonna force people to be Christians lol so that works for me

Hmmm, I was thinking it was something like that. I asked Ceebee too so I should be able to confirm it! And yeah sure! I’m planning on making it a series of just any Christian music I vibe to lol which is basically all Christian music xD So when I get some info from Ceebee and after I start making the projects, I’ll notify you (ack I love your stuff so I can’t believe you would want to see mine >.<)

Political discussion is actually allowed just as long as you're respectful to Scratchers.

Projects that are just music that you didn't make aren't allowed, but if it's you playing it on violin then I think you should be fine.
