    Run Shoutcast?

    1) Issue a SUBNET ban to this IP range: 207.244.72.0-255 (Ban Whole Subnet option)
    2) Now search your listener page for connections that are from 207.244.72 - When you find them,...

    The intention of most aspects of the DMCA is really to discourage theft (ripping, in the case of streaming radio). So as far as that goes, I'm in favor. I'm really not interested in paying bandwidth...

    I think it's competition. Both for Pandora, and of course for stations listed in the old iTunes Internet Directory (which is still there, but somewhat hidden in the US version of iTunes).

    I run 64kbps too - I sense most of my listeners are in the office. A 64kbps AAC stream is gentle on bandwidth (less likely to rebuffer) and "good enough" for most PC speakers, especially in a noisy...
