    Sound fine to me. You're allowed to do this. smile

    As a rule of thumb if the sound was created by a person and played to you through some sort of listening medium (like a speaker) then it's most probably copyrighted.

    Any mechanical sound that a thing makes and you record it, that belongs to you.

    I say that record. It's your recording. If it's not legal, then Freesound must remove all CD- and DVD-player opening and closing sounds.
