After the demise of SWcast, it's good to see another company to fill in the void supplying royalty licensing to ShoutCast broadcasters.

It's never good to have only company doing this. Competition is good.

why? sounds almost like you're advertising - which is a nono

Is it just me or are shoutcast users getting dumber?

as sankt posted about this in the GD forum, i'll leave this one alive, though it would otherwise probably have been deleted as being a dubious spam thread...

is this site for real?

I don't mean to sound funny, but I am sure this site is legal to allow a licence , but being the
internet how would one know this is is legally allowed to do this.

thoughts would be good

It's pretty easy to contact the Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) to confirm the coverage. All indications are that StreamLicensing has the required agreements, as does LoudCity, Live365 and Loudcaster.

So... If you're a USA broadcaster with a USA audience, any of the above places can offer you a place to broadcast that takes care of the legalities. Choice is definitely good.

However, if you're a Canadian or overseas (Europe, Asia etc) broadcaster, you should probably consult the laws in your own country because most likely you will need to deal with the PROs / collection agencies there.

Ultimately, if you're publically performing work you do not own the rights to, legal advice from a qualified copyright & intellectual property attorney is always a good idea no matter where you live. Penalties for illegal streaming are big, and in some places, getting bigger...

They have the ASCAP, BMI, SESAC & SoundExchange Logos on their index page. They are all clickable links for you to view their agreements with the licensing authorities.

Completely legit and great people to deal with. You bring your own bandwidth (your own Shoutcast Stream) and they do the reporting and royalties for you. Their licenses allow me to run ads in my stream to help earn offsetting revenue (which their competition didn't without a hefty annual fee).

I believe SoundExchange is coming out with a news release confirming their part of the relationship.

After the SWCast fiasco, I did my research before signing up with their service.
