Bless your heart for being concerned. However, playing music in the chat rooms or wherever is just like playing music in the park or your car or wherever. As long as the person playing it is not trying to sll it or charge people to come and listen, just playing it falls under "fair use." It's only when smaddy tries to make money off other folks stuff or makes substantial copies that it becomes an infringement. Hope this helps.
