[quote]Have you looked at what RIAA wants to charge for your internet stream?
No, I haven’t
Many have argued that the RIAA fees were put in place to pretty much prevent streaming guild materials completely. The fees for internet streaming are really, really high for the audience size and operator revenue.
The best work-around seems to be using a third party clearing house, like the firms who sell streaming bandwidth and also license content.
Are there any profitable operations, Part 15 or streaming? Not that I’ve ever heard of. I think you’ll make more more money, and a much better ROI, on an espresso stand – plus, you could broadcast to your customers while they waited in your drive through 🙂
Come to think of it, I haven’t heard of that many profitable licensed AM stations these days either – even hot talk and Hispanic seem to do better on FM 🙂
