I dont know if this is the right place to ask, but please help. I want to add some music into my mod(and music discs when the come out), but i dont know if I can. I want to add small portions of copy righted music. Can I add it legally. (i.e 30 seconds of the avengers theme). Thanks

Alright, I'm gonna say probably not. Maybe do some research elsewhere, these forums probably aren't gonna give you the sort of answer you're looking for.

Ima take back what I said...kind of. What I recommend you do is convert the audio clip you want to use into a midi file (the note block version) and use the midi version of it. I am not sure if it is actually called midi though, it's been ages since I last messed with Minecraft's audio and my memory is kind of fuzzy.

It might get you in legal trouble, better don't use copyrighted music.
