    Is license needed to play new unsigned artists

    I am wanting to start a US internet radio station and only play new unsigned artist local to my region. Would a legal document stating they give me the right to play their music on my station be sufficient? Thanks for any help.

    You are correct Jerry. However, I would have a lawyer draw the document up to ensure all the ducks are correctly in a row.

    Yep, you're good *provided* the artists also wrote the lyrics and musical compositions they perform (No covers)

    Thanks everyone for the help. I just got my sam pro up and running, (thanks for the Woohoo discount Jim) I need to tweak my website to make it look more professional. I hope to be streaming fulltime tomorrow. Thanks again.

    Still editing and testing a few things on the site. I guess a website is a work in progress, always finding something to change. Here is the link to my site. Be nice, it is my first website. Thanks for all your help. www.breakoutradio.com

    They do, but I had no idea how to do a site. I did find tons of information about building one. But, Its already paid for a year. But I will be moving when the time comes. WoHoo was great on setting up the Sam Broadcaster purchase. Im still having some minor issues with it though, probably something I did. I emailed there support dept, but havent heard anything back. Thanks for your help Jim.

    And no samples either. They must have full rights to all parts of ths composition.

    Just because they are unsigned doesnt mean they have less rights, you must have the songwriters/musicians written consent to broadcast there material.
