Music and Licensing
UNITED STATES FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES THAT INTERNET STATIONS PAY ROYALTIES!
Musicians should get paid for their music. By law broadcast stations must pay their fees. Below you will find the web sites for each PRO. Next to the web site address is the email for the person in charge of internet streaming for each agency. Please do not bother these people. They are all very kind and interested in our benefit. They are quite busy. In most cases you will not need to contact them as their web presence is sufficient to get you on the air.

Question: Exactly what is the advantage of your stream being part of a licensing “company” on an app with 100 other stations?
Answer: There is no benefit. You can get that from TuneIn.com. If you truly want listeners get your own app and player. A real app, not some HTML5 script. The truth is HTML5 while nice is not “cross operating system compatible”. Many older Samsung brands and LG models do not play HTML5. Older devices and older versions of iOS and Android also do not work well with HTML5. SecureNet Systems will construct a legal app for your station in both the Apple iOs and Google Android environments. This app can be customized for your stream and supports a 256 character push notification system. The SecureNet Systems Desktop player is available in a number of styles and can be easily monetized to get your station earning right away.
SecureNet Systems helps you with ads! Both on the player and the apps, YOU control the ads seen on the player and your apps. You make the money, not some server company. Use banner ads that you sell or use ads provided by SecureNet. This is important if you want to function as a business. Yet, even as a hobby we have a better option!
SecureNetSystems will also help you monetize your website using banners from AdNet. Check out their links at the bottom of each page.
