Acceptable Use Policy

Soundslice provides a platform for learning music and sharing one's learnings. This document outlines our goals and what we consider acceptable (and unacceptable) use. We've tried to keep it readable; feel free to email with questions.


The main goal of Soundslice is to help you learn to play specific pieces of music. It's primarily for educational use, and we hope our tools make you become a better musician.

Beyond that, Soundslice is rather open-ended, in that it allows arbitrary annotation of sound and video. We expect users will discover and invent many wonderful, unexpected ways to use it. Those are encouraged, as long as they're consistent with this policy.

  1. violates, or encourages any conduct that violates laws or regulations;

  4. infringes any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, or other personal or proprietary rights;
