Legally, none, not one little bit. Yes, technically, none. Or at least none of the copyrighted parts (new creative works). But the copyright owner still has the burden of proof on a number of issues, so a relatively minor infringement isn't going to justify calling out the bus-load of litigators. You may get a somewhat pointed letter that asks you what you think you're doing (or the like) and you should take that as a sign they're warming up the bus. Better safe than sorry, unless you have a lot of time and money to go defend yourself in federal court.
Answer Usually, if 30 seconds or less of a song is used by a website or business, it is considered "sampling" and not copyright infringement. For example, internet and Satellite radio services must pay full royalties to the copyright owners whenever they play a complete song. However, the songs they play as quick promos or clips are not subject to full copyright (and may not have to pay any royalties, depending on the terms of their license). This is why it's legal for I-Tunes to let you listen to 30 seconds of each song before you download it. To be safe, I would only post 30 seconds or less of a song on a public website. It is exceedingly unlikely that the recording companies would come after your for using "sampling" on a website.
It would depend. If the song is in the public domain, yes. If it is a copyrighted work, then no, not without the permission of the copyright holder.
Without permission, yes.
No. Public domain means that the material is available for use by anyone, without copyright restriction.
There is no such thing as "un-copyright". Something is either copyrighted or not. If it is copyrighted, then the copyright eventually expires, making it public domain.

Works in the public domain are not protected by copyright.
This music in in the public domain. Nothing from 1876 is still in copyright.
There is one public domain, which is the label assigned to that which is offered to or is available to the public, as opposed to having specific restrictions with regard to use. Copyright limits or forbids the use of a particular work (writing, art, music, theater, poetry, etc.) without permission of the copyright holder. When a copyright expires, the work moves into "public domain," meaning that anyone can use it free of charge and without permission. The works of Shakespeare, for example, public domain.
No it is not. It was copyrighted 1951. Any song with a copyright after 1922 is not in the public domain.
It depends on what you're doing with it. Any copyrighted material appearing on film or display in public is protected by copyright law and could be subject to legal action. This also applies to profiting off of said item without permission of the owner of those rights.
Yes, soundtrack in YouTube videos is copyrighted. If you want to use somebody else's content, you must get permission from them in order to avoid getting into any sort of trouble with copyright.
Work that is not protected by copyright is said to be in the public domain. This can happen for two reasons. Either the work was never copyrighted in the first place, or it was once copyrighted but the copyright has expired. Copyright also does not protect ideas, patentable materials, and works of the federal government.
Generally when public domain material is reissued, a copyright will be registered for any new material, such as annotation, compilation, etc.
Yes. Although unless something is done to extend the copyright laws, Mickey Mouse will be in the 'public domain' on January 1st 2024

The pieces of music themselves are not copyrighted, they are in the public domain. However, a PERFORMANCE of the National Anthem may very well be copyrighted. You could use the TUNE of a National Anthem in a newly composed piece, but you could not use someone's arrangement of the National Anthem without their express, written permission.

This is a very contentious issue and depends on the country the music is stored in, the country it is being downloaded in, the relationship the site has with the copyright owners and whether or not a copyright even exists on the music. In many countries it is illegal to host and download copyrighted music to/from the internet without permission from the copyright owner. With permission, a site may be allowed to do so. Napster's original incarnation was shut down for making music downloadable for free without permission from the copyright owners. One way around copyright laws is by downloading music that has been released into the public domain under licenses such as the Creative Commons attribution-non commercial share-alike license which allows the music to be freely copied and manipulated so long as the original author is credited and that it is distributed under the same license.
