    Have you asked those other sites if it is legal to use their APIs in this manner?

    Welcome to iMore! Using another app's API is generally illegal unless the developer specifically states otherwise.

    I'm not an attorney, however, you cannot simply give away songs created by other people. Those songs are not your property to disperse however you see fit. Artists, just like any other working person, deserve to be paid for their labor and therefore, in my opinion, unless you get permission from the artists or their legal representative to disperse their material for free, you will eventually find yourself in legal trouble.
