Stuff I don't necessarily agree with, but as an internet broadcaster, I must follow:
Broadcasters must comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Here are some important highlights:
- Your station must not be part of an "interactive service?. This means no personalized
on-demand streaming or downloading of content. Sound recordings can?t be performed within one hour of a request by a listener
or at a time designated by the listener.
- In any three-hour period, you should not intentionally program more than
three songs (and not more than two songs in a row) from the same recording; you should not intentionally program more than
four songs (and not more than three songs in a row) from the same recording artist or anthology/box set.
programs (those that, when accessed, always start in the same place and play in the same order) should be at least five hours
long, and should not be available for more than two weeks at a time.
Continuous "looped" programs (those that always perform
in the same order, but are accessed in a continuous play stream) should be at least three hours long.
of programs can be performed at scheduled times three times in a two-week period (for programs of less than one hour) and
four times (for programs of an hour or more).
- Do not publish advance program guides or use other means to pre-announce
when particular sound recordings will be played. However, a webcaster may name one or two artists to illustrate the type of
music on a particular channel; and, DJ "teaser" announcement using artists' names are permitted, but only those that do not
specify the time a song will be played.
- Use only sound recordings that are authorized for performance in the United
States (e.g.: do not play bootleg recordings).
- Provide some means for the end user to identify the song, artist
and album title of the recording as it is being played.
- Lastly, the DMCA also requires that you accommodate technological
copyright protection measures or pass through any identification, which may be included in the song recording itself, as long
as it does not impose substantial costs or burdens on the webcaster. Also, do not deploy or support technological means to
evade these requirements; and, do not explicitly encourage home taping.
