I'm planning to launch a website where users can upload a song they will sing, it maybe a movie song or their original composition.
My question is if I host movie songs sung by users of my website am I doing anything illegal. I mean can the media companies whoes song my website users would be singing have the ability to sue me for any wrorgdoing since they own the copyright to a particular song.

Hi, you have not copy the songs of movies but it is a song sing by the them so the company can not claim right over the song sing by individuals so they can not claim any right over them.
My website will be based in India.

Well for template or a sample document, you will have to contact a particular lawyer as everyone has their own samples. In your privavy policy you have to secure yourself by portraying yourself as just a medium who has provided a platform for the singers to grow their talent.
