Are there not broadcast copyright issues though on their end? As in can the MP3 snippet be held as proof if it was obtained without a licence from the station?

Paul Shiels

Hi Emmet

As we are acting on behlaf of the copyright owners we effectively get permissions from the owners to monitor usage of their copyrights. The station is a public performance medium and as such is in the public domain as soon as its broadcast. In short the station has no rights to license anything they play this is down to publishers labels and artists.

Hmm ok, thanks for the response Paul. Sounds interesting. Are there limitations then with satellite radio or other stations which charge for listenership?

Paul Shiels

We currently monitor over 200,000 web based radio and music websites these sites like the radio stations have blanket licenses which allow them to play as much music as they like. We are merely providing business inteligence data to the copyright owners not to pursue royalties but to use as a tool for promotional budgets and fan interaction.

Is there no Tunetrak website?

Paul

We are currently putting it together and having started life out as www.rsrdigital.com we will be building upon the content on this website and migrating accross in the next few weeks.
