Music Licensing

Postby Stashu » Thu Dec 04, 2008 7:54 pm

I use the DRS2006 for Radio Consulting, but would like to go public with an internet station.
I've done some research on BMI and ASCAP reporting, and the monthly fees can get outrageous, even for non-commercial.
One source wanted $10,000 just to sign me up. And around $2,000 a month to be licensed. Non-Commercial. Commercial rates were higher, and included a 'percentage of business' royalty.
This kind of fee structure makes it impossible to think of going on the air.
Any comments appreciated.

I use Web Radio World as they have packages that include PPLUK license fees.

Hi,
i couldn't tell from visiting the web site what they covered as far as royalties. Do they cover the usual Music Licensing as well as Performance Rights?
And, how stable are they for streaming?

Have things loosened up in the Music Licensing world?
Do we have to pay BMI-ASCAP [sheet music] AND performance rights?
I'm still using DRS2006 for consulting purposes only, and would like to go live with my own station.
What's a ballpark figure for licensing. Let's say starting at around 100 concurrent listeners.

What are options for music licensing?
What services do you use and what is the most cost effective?
And, has anything been decided one way or the other for Performance rights?
I want to expand what I'm doing, but need to do it right without legal ramifications.

Thanks!

Brand new year. Same conundrum. What to do with music royalties.
What are people doing these days for Licensing?
I know there are ASCAP/BMI license packages available, but they just do the sheet music, not the performance rights.
