Geo Blocking - Worth Considering?
« on: October 09, 2014, 12:34:39 PM »
As far as legal webcasting goes, how do stand in other countries? This article has me seriously considering banning my stream to Canada.

I'm not sure what this is all about or whether it's something any internet station paying royalties through StreamLicensing.com should be concerned about. StreamLicensing.com tells us that our payments to StreamLicensing includes distributions to SOCAN, which is a Canadian entity.

See http://www.socan.ca/node/6

Perhaps Marvin or someone in authority at StreamLicensing can enlighten us about how ReSound, mentioned in this article at http://rainnews.com/us-radio-station-gets-a-notice-about-webcasting-royalties-in-canada-why-webcasters-geo-block-their-streams/ affects StreamLicensing and we internet radio guys and gals.
