Hi...I now know that I have to pay royalties in order to play other peoples music creations(I am in the USA) The shoutcast copyright material stuff wasnt really any help. Does anybody know if I have to pay each artist that I play or if I pay some other organization or how much it costs?...Any info would be helpful

The rules/laws vary depending on the source location.

For folks in the U.S.A. (and others wanting a good read), try this for starters (http://www.shoutcast.com/download/broadcast.phtml#copyright).

For a more definitive answer, please consult legal assistance.
