I did a post a while back about the restrictions that Terrestrial stations have when it comes to using SAM Broadcaster.
Spacial Audio updated their EULA (End User Licence Agreement) on the 10th of April 2017
I’ve been reading a few articles this past few weeks to do with Internet radio royalty fees going up for stations on the Internet.
Some station owners are paying as little as $23.50 a month to licence their streams at the moment and it’s those broadcasters who are going to be affected by any rise in royalty payments.
Under the WSA which expires this year the SoundExchange portion of royalties would be around $60-$90 a month.

Certain people in the Internet radio community reckoned we ran a pirate radio station & some people also reckon that I have done work for pirate stations in the past.
Nope completely wrong on all counts!
The stations I’ve worked for in the past were all legit and above board. I once got asked to work for a pirate station in Scunthorpe (WLNG) in the late 1980s but also declined that offer.
When it comes to streaming a station I’ve only ever streamed music for me to listen to via a private internal shoutcast server (Which we no longer need because we’ve bought a Chromecast)
What really gets my back up on this subject is the fact that there are so many stations listed on various radio guide websites who have never owned a licence to stream.
Some of those stations have been going over 14 years. I won’t name names but you just know a pirate station on the Internet when you come across one.
No one it seems pulls them up about not having a licence for their music.
I am still streaming my music via
a private server Chromecast and I intend to carry on doing so.
Now piss off and find someone else to harass!
