There IS a reason to be careful when choosing templates. Some are not so good and might introduce security problems. That's especially true in the case of Wordpress and Joomla.
Wordpress is crap. As is Joomla. Proprietary junk that's marketed with a high profile.

no not downloading... streaming, two very different things

like I said...

That's OK, maybe, but they also made it seem like these users had a fake profile, because their names were fake in the vid.
There is NO good reason to post anything of value on FB. They can't be trusted. Giving someone license to do whatever the f*k they want with your music without notice is dumb. ESPECIALLY a crap company like fakebook.

Yes, you retain your copyright. So what? How many musicians have been screwed out of their property by signing over "exclusive distribution, publishing or marketing" rights? Yep, still got your copyright but it's basically worthless at that point cause you can't do anything with your own property.

How would you like it if you found out Fakebook was using your original music for all their TV ads without attribution or compensation? Or maybe some third party in South America that specializes in kiddie porn?

But I personally know of three cases. One in the domains I used to manage and two of quite famous security researchers. The latter two lost their domain because GD all of a sudden decided the content of their sites wasn't "appropriate", despite the content wasn't hosted with GD, nor the DNS. That's not only crazy, business wise, it's also clear censorship...
I have used gkg.net for 25 years. Never had an issue. I've had more than a few clients that have been screwed by godaddy tho. Your mileage may vary. Their ad campaigns should tell you all you need to know about who their target customer is.
