Hi,

Almost ready to promote my station. I'm working on my website version 1. A few legal things I want to do.

#1. Royalty statement i I want to add some statement to my site to avoid being shut down as I see some others have by over-zealous record companies.
Does anyone have some statement they use to explain that Radionomy is paying the royalties?

#2. Submitted tracks. When an indie artist submits music for the station I like to include it (if it doesn't suck). Does anyone have them fill out a form granting permission to broadcast?

Bonus question. Radionomy requires that we buy our music (proof of legal DL or physical CD). But what if the music is not for sale but offered only as a free download? In China, it seems record companies have given up trying to make money selling music. They make their money on artist endorsements. Consequently, I cannot even find CD stores or downloadable music for purchase. Mind you I read very little Chinese - but I am familiar with the word "download" :D . itunes and Amazon have some stuff and I can get a limited selection of entire CDs ($$$) on Yesasia.com For the most part, I don't think a lot of music is even available for sale, they just make it available for free (to promote a movie, TV show or Cosmetics line)

Right now I have about 350 songs that I have purchased and about 1000 songs that I'd love to play but can't nail down their origin. I'll buy 'em if I can find 'em. Otherwise they sit lonely and forgotten in a dark digital corner of my hard drive.

Hi MandarinRadio,

For your first question, what I do on my station's site is to make a statement that it is powered by Radionomy and all music licensing questions should be directed to Radionomy. I don't think it has to be a complex statement, but just something stating that the station is on the Radionomy platform and licensed through them and any question should be directed to them.

For your second question, I guess it doesn't hurt to have them fill out a form saying they give the station permission to broadcast the music. More or less you're probably going to just want to keep a paper trail somewhere for those incase you ever get any questions. I always say better to have your "I's" dotted and "T's" crossed to be safe :)

The last question I'm not sure how to answer. Maybe Domi could answer that for you. Might be a question for their legal department.

Thanks Jake.

I am trying to avoid reinventing the wheel.

Hello,

You have to make sure these websites are legal and you can really download the tracks for free but keep in mind it is your responsability. Radionomy only covers the broadcasting rights.

All I do is provide a link to the Radionomy (The playtheradio.com) link on my website. That's no more than a link. It's not my stream, it's not my server, etc. I just program it.

I also put a disclaimer on my website, telling anybody with a copyright issue to contact Radionomy if they have any questions, with their mailing addresses. Nobody has bothered me yet.

As I understand it, because Radionomy is based in Belgium, it is beyond the reach of the U.S.-based Copyright Royalty Board. Regarding licensing & royalties, Radionomy is only liable to the laws of Belgium - their only legal responsibility is to Belgian law. That makes Radionomy the perfect (& legal) platform for programmers/producers who cannot afford or will not pay the oppressive new streaming-music rates which U.S.-based platforms are forced by law to pay, thanks to the CRB (& RIAA).

Oh don't even get me started on the CRB, I am stifling a rant as I type. It is frankly the reason I stopped doing this 4 years ago - the whole situation just made it not fun anymore. I am vowing (once I get this all setup) not to think about it - I just start fuming at the stupidity of it all.

I have decided not to list my location here on radionomy on the outside chance someone might say that I am "broadcasting" using a US location.

The truth is, I do not know exactly where the servers are located - And I don't want to know.

They're in Europe, likely Belgium. They're high bitrate, like many European radio stations. 128kbps. In The U.S., the internet is kinda behind, bandwidth isn't all that great, so most run 64kbps AAC or below to save bandwidth. In Europe, more competition, more ISPs, more bandwidth.

I'm guessing the setup is sorta like NRJ in France (NRJ is a national radio network, there's others, but this is probably the largest, and they have other operations outside of France)

They have "Webradios" as they call them. You can stream at high quality their main network feed, then they have a huge amount of internet-only stations. NRJ Hits, NRJ Valentines Day, NRJ Rock, NRJ U.S. Top-40, NRJ U.K. Top-40, NRJ In Bed, NRJ French Hits, NRJ Acoustic, NRJ At Work, NRJ Latino, NRJ Classic Rock, NRJ Sexy, the list goes on and on. They also have a heavy amount of single artist streams.

Their sister network (Classic Hits/Oldies) Nostalgie has a live stream of the radio network, and special 80s, 70s, 60s-only streams. A Jazz stream. Classic Rock, Funk, Italian, Motown, Disco, Blues, 90s, etc.

Competitor networks like RFM (Adult Contemporary) have them as well. RFM Night Fever (Disco) David Bowie Tribute, Lounge, 90s Music, 80s, Divas.

I'm guessing Radionomy has a similar server setup.
