    Why did HitzRadio shutdown ?

    Two words to take care of the Royalty Licensing problem .......... Creative Commons ! There is a TON of music out there that has been released under Creative Commons.

    Creative Commons is the NO FUSS solution to your problems. Match the Creative Commons license to the type of station you use and BAM - you are good to go.
    End of story.

    Play 100% of that music and show some evidence to soundexchange that those songs are creative commons licensed. They won't bug you then!

    Interesting ...
    I made a search to some details, who can be interesting to fellow members :
    http://creativecommons.org/
    Thanks Saint and James to point to the CC
    Honestly after all my years of expierence I didn't knew that it excisted ...

    I do know that "adapted music" has exceptions to the artist and user of it.
    It makes it possible to add/use 1 or more samples into a new music arrangement even open for commercial use
    For that reason there are currently many tracks released as remix of an old song (90s and before + classical) ... The fun thing is that from that moment on the royalties goes to the "new" performer and not anymore to the original artist.
    Lets say the thin line between whats legal and not legal ... but its being used by a lot of today artists

    There's a common misconception that if you stream indie/unsigned music, no royalties are owed. In the USA, that's not true unfortunately. Underground/Independent Label music is still protected by US Copyright law, and SoundExchange is still the collecting agency. They take the money, and then "try" to find the artist (SoundExchange has a lot of banked funds collected for artists they've mysteriously been unable to locate).

    I'm still learning about the Creative Commons licensing model, but I think as a general rule that if you have written permission from all copyright holders of a given work (artist, label, composer, lyricist) then you don't have to pay royalties. Getting those permissions, on every single track on a station, is a lot of work though - if it's even possible.
