Is it legal to broadcast music on Shoutcast Radio if its music from Limewire?

I want to know if its legal to broadcast any music on Shoutcast I got from either recording the song on my computer or getting it off limewire.

Quick answer to that one would be a NO! You can only play mp3 files that have been extracted from CD's you own. Even then you need a licence.

Be careful Limewire is known to put Viruses & trojans on your PC.

Why would one even admit if they did get music from said program? If you have been paying royalties and your tunes are tagged correctly it won't look suspicious. But if you don't cross reference one may ask questions so always double check your ID tags no mater how you got your music collection and know something about the artists catalog so there is less of a chance for error. And NEVER play live bootleg material as that is a real bright light in a dark moonless night your just waiting to be caught and fined.

There are some good FREE auto tagging programs that read the audio fingerprint and will help tag your Mp3's but be sure to cross reference everything if you do things that way.

If your station gets donations you can put some of those donations towards purchasing new Mp3's from sources like iTunes or Amazon Mp3 downloads.

Hope this helps.
