Shoutcast broadcasting legally?


I've just started broadcasting on shoutcast and am concerned over the legal side of things!

obviously i currently have no listener base and am broadcasting from the UK from my own server

i guessing there is thousands of small stations out there with very small listener bases in the same situation as me?

are these stations paying royalties and licenses? is it just a matter of time until they get a letter through the post demanding fees?

surely its impossible to keep track of whats playing? we have a playlist on constant playback but not specific songs just recorded mixes from fellow dj's. we will then in the future have dj's connecting to mix live and songs can not be kept a record of there also

where do we stand on this in the uk?
