Nah on the mp3.com/Vivendi bunch, as they're not too interested in paying anyone despite their recent rigging of the royalties determinations. I have a station on Live365, EarthLight Online, that's running over two hours of my material at this time. I'm not using my full allotment obviously. But, I've just gotten a notice from them saying that, because of the recent rulings about royalties, they have to charge people a $5/month fee for the former free stations to cover it all. Like I was talking about several months ago? I hate being right sometimes. This is hilarious in a dark way, in that I own my own material, it's not registered with ASCAP or BMI (at this time), and I pay nobody for the use of it. Somewhat similar to the situation described as being in Italy, but at least it's not prohibitive as yet. I do appreciate the costs associated with running such a process even without the attempted squashing by the RIAA and their gangster buddies. Suffice it to say that I have no money as usual, and so if I can't pull $5 out every month starting in August, EarthLight Online will also be a victim of royalty rates. So here's my proposition: If you'd like your material to be played on the station, send me a CD and let me know which pieces you'd like to have playing - along with a small amount to help defray the $5 cost, but also my time in encoding and uploading (bandwidth costs money too) to my site. Respond to firstname.lastname@example.org off the list, if you'd like to do this. I can promise you I won't make a dime on this, but I do need to keep from being in the hole as well. Stephen P.
