    New Licensing Company - Competition for Loud City & Live365

    There has been a lot of talk since the demise of SWcast that Loud City has a monopoly on Licensing fees for ASCAP, BMI, SASAC, Sound Exchange, etc. if you are using Shoutcast or Icecast.

    They swing broadcasters over to their LoudCaster service so they make both the Stream Hosting fee and the Licensing fee. They have closed new sign ups for broadcasters using their own Stream Hosts, resulting in many pulling the plug on their stations. Many broadcasters want to use their hosts because of pricing, Centovacast control panel, etc.

    Supposedly, this is the first of several companies that are coming out to compete against Loud City. Bring it on !!

    I love Loudcity to death and wish them all the luck in the world, but healthy competition is always great. And considering they are in a bind with no room for new customers, this is also a benefit for those currently looking to jump into legal broadcasting.

    I do have a beef with the site itself though. It lacks a professional feel. If they are 100% legitimate they need to step that up if they want new customers to take them seriously.

    Hi friends,

    Let me apologize in advance for this lengthy post. I am Marvin Glass from StreamLicensing, LLC. I own and operate All Southern Gospel Radio (Internet only) and also own and operate WGNQ AM1480 / FM 97.7. I appreciate the input on the site and will address the problem with website design immediately. You all have done me a favor helping me know where I have a problem!

    My mistake is I've invested much time and money to date with attorney's fees getting the legal stuff right and with software development to get the data polling/reporting software up and going and forgot that I needed to address the front end software as well.

    I agree the legal stuff is too prominent though my lawyer says it must be there. You can do me a big favor by giving me more specific input on what whomever I hire to fix the website needs to address. I am legitimate and have the paperwork to prove it and want to have a website that gives the appropriate info along with putting out the right perception.

    Thanks!

    I just think that some more time should be taken. Maybe a custom design would be beneficial. Right now, in my professional opinion, it reminds me of those websites that scam people out of their money.

    I'd be happy to help in any way that I can. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    Marvin, just a observation. Your incorporating Flash in your website. Many of the new generation portable devices that access the web don't recognize flash. I personally detest flash because of their total lack of support for the Unix platform. (They only provide binaries for Linux - not for any of the BSD's or Solaris. Running Linux emulation is a pain just to install Flash Support. ) Why not use a animated image instead ?

    The rest of the website looks great and very professional. I hope you get lots of business !
    You might want to drop by the winamp forums and make some mention over there to drum up support

    Winamp / Other Forums

    I'll look at animated images, that will be a new learning experience for me.

    Posting to other forums including Winamp I do believe would be helpful, however, in reading their forum rules advertising is forbidden. Looks to me like if I post there I am advertising, if someone else posts, simply letting people know the service is available that it can go from there! Especially if I know what forums are being posted so that I can join the discussion that ensues. I guess I need someone with time who wants to work with me on getting the word out, maybe in exchange for free month or two of licensing?
