Just adding vocals to the instrumentals.

Just wondering... if I'd make own version of unreleased song and release it by myself, would I break copyright laws? 

I've been wondering about that too. I have to assume it would still break copyright law even if you recorded from the ground up. I'm sure others are more well versed in the law than I am, but assume the melodies and chord structures are protected.

But if there's no proof of having / hearing leaked material that you should otherwise not know about musically can't you make an argument that you yourself came up with said chord structure? It is just music after all ...

Something that does crack me up is I've had a few different facebook videos with the unreleased songs playing in the background and I don't get the typical "we think you don't own this music" warning that id get if I had a video with a commonly released song.

Don't even get me started on Facebook and music. It's such a giant pain in the ass.

It's still available!

Ah ok. Still tho, I thought I had the vocal/ songwriting/ recording capabilities to do it but on second thought I don’t think I do, so someone else can have it!

Think I've got most of my melodies decided for Oklahoma. Will try and get lyrics and record over the next couple weeks hopefully.

You are not allowed to make a cover of an copyrighted unreleased song, atleast in my country.

It would definetely violate copyright. For fun private purposes no problem but if you put that out somewhere in public or even charge money for it you probably gonna have the band frying your asses and rightly so. It's someone elses music, so unless the copyright owners give you the go it's violating copyright.

But it's not a real song, nobody has ever released it. I can say that I've created Prom Violence 15 years ago.

But they would likely contest that and be able to prove you are wrong.

Those songs have already long been copyrighted even if not released/or have lyrics. They have rhythmic and melodic structure even as instrumentals. In any copyright case it comes down to proving an argument that the offending party has heard your work. In this case that’s pretty open/shut here
