View Full Version : Question About Starting a Station

28th April 2003, 18:10
I'm thinking about starting a station that plays trance music and I would like to play a bunch of mp3s I have. I don't plan on making any profit from it so would I still have to pay for licensing and royalties?

Any info would be greatly appreciated and I'm sorry if this question has be asked before.
