How to avoid copyright infringement
Because the rights afforded by copyright law are exclusive to the copyright owner(s), you will infringe copyright if you make use of the copyrighted work without the permission of the copyright owner(s) - for example, if you copy or adapt a copyright work, or make it available on the internet.

The best way to avoid copyright infringement is to ensure that you don’t use anything created by someone else. Simple as that.

If you do use someone else's work, make sure you have the necessary permissions – this will usually take the form of a license from the copyright owner(s), which you may have to pay for. There are certain instances where you may be able to use excerpts of copyrighted material without a license – for example, if you use a small part of someone else's work for the purposes of criticism or review, or if your use constitutes "fair use" under applicable law (particularly U.S. law) – however, discussion of these exceptions is beyond the scope of this guidance. If you intend to use any part of a copyright work in reliance on any of the statutory exceptions, you should seek legal advice first.

What about if you're a podcaster, and want to use famous peoples music as say 'bumper music', intro music, that lasts less than one minute, the way Rush Limbaugh shows open, or all other major talk radio hosts...is there like a 1 minute or less rule?
