Should my mom's songs be in a separate article, as one email said?

    Hello, Hubbers. I'm looking for a place to put my mom's songs, but I need a separate article to put it on. What would be the correct title for my mom's songs? If you've got any ideas, then spill the beans.

      I don't think Hubpages allows you to post other people's material.

        That depends on how he posts them, though. If he embeds a YouTube video, it's completely fine.

        It'll be fine if he has his mother's permission. There was a writer here a few months ago who paid someone to write an article for him. As far as I know it was approved. As long as it is original, HP won't care.

          The trouble is that my mom's songs are in Spanish, and I am (sort of) a good translator of songs written in Spanish. What do I do?

            You decide whether this is good hub content.  If you decide it is, you get your Mom to give you written permission to translate and post this material on Hubpages.  Then you do it.

              Got my mom's permission. I called her over the phone and she said ok.

                You should get it in writing or audio-recording, a verbal assurance will not be acceptable to editors if they request proof that you hold the rights to publish the material online.

            Indeed, but that means having a written permission from the rights holder to show if editors request it.  They are most likely to "request" it by failing the hub on QAP and then the hubber having to follow up and demonstrate legal compliance.  This might be prevented by making the permission explicit in the hub.
