Got Wavestreaming, but now...

I got the idea that I want to broadcast my eclectic music tastes to my friends and anyone else who might stumble upon my broadcast and not trying to make any money. I have a server, and I am going through Wavestream that was featured on the Broadcast Now! tab. I use Virtual DJ Broadcaster to set up the playlists and stream them. I don't have any licensing for copyrighted material, though. Did I rush into things by going through Wavestream instead of LoudCity or live365? DO I need one of those in addition to Wavestream? Please help an enthusiastic, but terribly wet-behind-the-ears n00b out!

If you do not own the music or gotten permission directly, chances are you need licensing.
So check StreamLicensing.com to get licensing for your stream.

If you have no stream hosting, both Loudcaster (http://www.loudcaster.com) and Live365 (http://www.live365.com) offer plans that cover royalties and provide the servers.

LoudCity (http://www.loudcity.com) and stream licensing (link above) offer royalty coverage where you bring your own server(s).

If you want to broadcast using Wavestreaming you could use http://streamlicensing.com or get a vpn and use http://webradioworld.com since your stream would originate from the UK to the UK. Check the rates there as well. http://streamlicensing.com has rates starting at $22 and allows you to stream commercials too if you want thus the opportunity to make a little money if you get sponsors. Its a possibility to look into.

Thanks everyone! I understand the process a bit better now. I am not sure if I am going to do the Loudcaster/365 server or stay with Shoutcast and Wavestreaming. I can make a more informed decision now, though.
