Mordor is here!!!

Yes, we've been contacted by the organization SoundExchange and they want us to pay licenses for internet streaming in the US. I've opened up a thread in the forum for the discussion of this problem. We can never pay these licenses since we don't really make any money, we're a non-commercial station. So if you have any knowledge, insight, experience with this please get in touch with us in the forum. We need all the help we can get...

Well, I suppose they do have a point...even if it is an arguable one, on whether or not royalty rights should include a radio station. If they include non-internet radio stations, then I guess it should include internet ones, as they're the same thing basically. Sounds like it's just going to be one more bit of overhead to be paid for.

Makes sense, doesn't it? SoundExchange is notforprofit and tryin to get musicians paid when radio users their songs - why's that bad?

Well, I really like the idea that the artists get paid, if we make money of the site. We'd die or change what we play completely. That's the reality of it. Oh well, time will tell what happens.

Yeah, but as an artist myself, (and having been 'born' on RR may have something to do with it...) I would rather get my music out there and promoted on a streaming site like this and get my name known. I can make money through my CD sales (although I tend to make most of my music available for free download anyway!!)
