OK since they pay royalties for Streaming your legally allowed to stream from your PC as well to their server and run a show. As far as part 15 since your allowed to use it to MONITOR your station you could get around this by saying “I’m MONITORING my Internet station and have a friend in the neighborhood that does as well but even that is gray. Seriously I highly doubt the RIAA, Sound Exchange or ASCAP, BMI is gonna bother with your part 15 station. In fact Pandora wants to also own FM stations and they are fighting to abolish all requirements to PAY to play any music on the Radio since Radio is a promotional tool that Helps sales and should not be treated the same as file sharing or ON DEMAND streaming. Read up on this. The RIAA is getting into some Very Hot Water themselves for schemes that should have been deemed less than legal. They themselves have broke copyright laws and I can go into this someday when we have an entire website to dedicate to the hate I have for the RIAA and for good reason. I’ll just say in short there was an RIAA training video that leaked into the public and it was interesting to note that the RIAA used a Trial version of a software to make the training packet. Illegal because that version was NOT TO BE USED FOR PUBLIC DESPLAY and furthermore broke the copyright rules for that software. You are going to sue others for copyright violations but your group has free raign to do as they wish. I doubt in any serious nature they will bother you unless you live in a police state near the RIAA or law school or firm. You live in CT DON’T RUN PART 15. OK I’m done with my rants and will say no more. I just won’t be pushed into something like this because I doubt I even have 10 listeners at once to my part 15 station.
