mac dev I can’t post suspicions and complaints about copyright compliances in front of your back, so I need to take a different tone.
My situation is different than the typical streaming radio station. I do not broadcast copyright songs from CDs or vinyl records, having a mainly talk format with permissions from all my program sources. They all use library music that’s either Creative Commons, public domain, or commissioned privately. There’s no worry about that.
But I produce the occasional talk show of my own and like to pick brief seconds from my 10,000 disc record library as bumper music or bridge music for these noncommercial educational programs made available free to Part 15 stations.
Some of my music usage could be viewed as “fair use,” but that’s unsteady ground and not a safe zone.
There are no funds earned from this effort, nor leftover time to maintain elaborate books, making any claims by copyright agencies a veritable “unfunded mandate.”
If small hobby playtime program production is rendered criminal by corporate giants, we might as well explore affordable housing in North Korea.
I’m already transistioning into a new hobby as bird house architect.
