did you get your songs from the itunes store?
if so, they're protected or something like that

try burning to a cd and then ripping. it should be unprotected

Yeah, iTunes burning is a grey area, depending on where you live. Soon it won't be in Canada though! Technically adding music that you don't own the rights to (or have permission to use) to any video that you release publicly is illegal. But, depending on what you're using is for, and it's not for profit, it's still a grey area on the internet it seems.

Don't forget that iTunes plus songs don't have that protection that keeps you from re-encoding them, and I believe they now cost the same. Of course, they're not always available, but you can upgrade your songs within a certain time frame too.

I recently got an email that snowbound, my video would be potentially removed, because of music copyright reasons, but I added in the names of the songs and artists and it's apparenty (asuming) fine for now, as Nothings happened in the four months after I got the email.

Intellectual property law is not my area however, as I understand it, the owner of the video is not in breach of copyright law if the owner does not assume ownership of the music that's on the video. Therefore, by quoting the name of the musician on your video you will not be assuming ownership of the music on it. As Sean says, it's likely that grey areas exist and this may in part be dependant on the laws of your country and the use etc.
