For what its worth I’d have no commercials on my Internet stream and no PSA’s every 3rd song to trigger the ads if it were not for having to pay the PRO’s for streaming. StreamLicensing is trying to work out a more reasonable approach for Hobby Webcasting. I do know there is something in the works but don’t have a link to it for non profits like NPR and LPFM and if that does happen maybe part 15 could fall into that category and me exempt. Keep an eye on the Royalty laws for Streaming and over the air rates for 2016 as this could effect us in the future. If StreamLicensing, Pandora, Spotify and Live365 get their way it may be cheaper. Live365 is our friends for real as they are trying to get hobby webcasters exempt from the new rates. Otherwise according to Marvin of StreamLicensing could be the death of Hobby Internet Radio (In A Legal sense). All I can say is that if you are a client of StreamLicensing read their forums they can give you a feel for what is in store for the future.
Hope this helps and sorry I don’t have direct links for you to read.
