I don't know about the rest of you, but if I were a signed artist, I'd sure like to get the royalties I'm due.

If you are going to be an above-board, legitimate station, you have to (1) get those licenses (BMI, ASCAP, SESAC) and (2) play only music that you physically own, or that your collection of staff owns.

It isn't legal by the DMCA to go to, say, Kazaa, and download tracks you don't already own in some physical form (vinyl, 8track, cassette, cd).

That's why people are getting caught.

If you're gonna do it, you might as well do it right, or not do it at all.
