I would like to use music and/or image files on my site. Is this legal?

It depends. If the music or image is your own original work, then of course it is perfectly legal for you to use it. But if the image or music was created by someone else, you are required to comply with copyright law by obtaining permission from the person(s) who created it, both the original work (for example, the composer and lyricist of a song) and the derivative work (e.g., a third party's rendition of it) you wish to publish.
