Ok - I did a search for 'advertising' information, and found a lot of rules about not putting advertising into your forum posts. (Makes sense - people would be here forever saying "listen to my Shoutcast! Hit my site! Yadda, yadda.")

Here's my question: Is there a rule on advertising content on your broadcast?

For example, if I'm playing ten tracks of music, and then there's a 30 second commercial saying, "Hit my website at www.blahblahblah" or something, is THIS against the rules?

If it is, can someone throw me a link to 'The Rules'? I'd happily read them, if they're around.

Thanks!

no in fact on the forum in my sig other stations are dicussing on air ads. Shoutcast does not have anything against ads in their TOS, far as I know. You can sell all the ads you want.

if im wrong someone please clear this up.

Your station, your rules.

Simple, and to the point. That rocks. Thanks to Tuckerm and RadioRevolt! (...and in advance, to anyone else who posts more info!)
