***New Player Mandates*** EEFECTIVE JUNE 1ST 2016
« on: May 15, 2016, 11:19:32 AM »
Since it was NOT posted here, but an email was just sent out this morning...


Hi David,

While we continue to fight for the Small Webcasters Settlement Act to be re-instated, we must make necessary changes to help off-set some of these costs. You will continue to have the same pricing as you have now. As part of our effort to continue affordable royalty coverage, we are now requiring all broadcasters to use our web player in order to maintain compliance with StreamLicensing and the PROs. It is necessary for us to augment the difference in per-performance fess with SoundExchange, while continuing to provide the same pricing to customers. By using our web player, we will incorporate display and pre-roll ads that will help to make up the difference.

Beginning June 1st, 2016 all stations will be required to switch to our player which will enable us to pay the per-performance fees for you. If you wish to use a third party player you must agree to pay the additional per-performance fees each month. Simply open a ticket and our Managemen t Team will be glad to quote you the additional fees and allow you to opt out of the player mandate. You may obtain this link and information inside your control panel by navigating to http://www.streamlicensing.com/xstream/index.php.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. You may simply reply to this ticket at any time.

Warmest Regards,

The StreamLicensing Team

So it would seem listing through 3rd party sites is a no no.  This would greatly limit the ability to promote not to mention that there are many 3rd party sites that list stations without permission.

Here's an email I received May 16, 2016 that might clear concern up:

Hi Gary,

To add a bit of clarification to yesterday’s e-mail:

1.) You will NOT have to remove your existing links from third party directories. This is only a requirement for your own website to link to our player.

2.) StreamLicensing does not implement any geo-restrictions on your player or stream. We actually encourage users to have an international audience, as these do not count towards your monthly ATH.

Please excuse us if we are a little slow responding to your support tickets but the email overwhelmed us with responses. We are getting to them as fast as we can.

Warmest Regards,

Your StreamLicensing Team
