Im after people who can just upload sets to get a decent selection of music in each category before I make it fully public. I will be interested in residents (who will receivee a special tag in the DB and probabaly other benefits) in time aswell.
If you take a look at www.lsdb.nl
for instance it is a link site. I intend my site to be the the storage database, for the music.
After talking to the people providing the licence it seems that aslong as the music is licenced for redistribution the source is not so important. Obviously if an artists specifically requested that it is removed it would be but I cant see that happening if im paying for people to listen to their music lol.
A little more information, The music, due to licencing terms must be livesets, recorded podcasts.
These are two seperate licences which will be held for users to stream and download.
Music podcasting service
A downloadable, audio only programme that contains both music
and speech and where the podcast cannot be disaggregated
into its individual tracks
Premium and Interactive Webcasting service
User can interact e.g. skip tracks, pause, fast-forward etc,
but not select specific tracks on-demand
If you have any ideas or know something I dont know about the way this works it would be welcomed input. As stated, I must get the licence sorted before moving forward but it is all food for thought.
