Example 7 of guidline 3.1 is someone providing music samples on their 
personal web site, to demonstrate types of music and instrument.  
Unfortunately, as the example describes an amateur site, it is almost
inevitable that someone constructing a site in this way will breach copyright
and performing rights, as the general public's concept of what is allowed
is generally a lot more liberal than the music industry's.
