Notice of termination of licensing through LIVE365
As a Live365 Broadcaster,

For 5 years, Old Folks Radio has offered a unique stream of music programming, providing an alternative distribution channel for diverse, quality content on the Internet in a legally responsible way.

Recently, the Copyright Royalty Board, the governing entity for establishing
the sound recording royalty rates that are paid to copyright holders,
has published the new rates for 2016-20.

The previous provisions for small webcasters
to opt for a percentage of revenue model were not renewed

The current provisions end at the end of 2015.

The absence of this license will make legally streaming copyrighted
musical content prohibitively expensive for many small to mid-sized Internet broadcasters.

We, and Live365, relied on this license so we have closed for now.  

"The true value of Live365 was in it's diversity of content - it's a sanctuary where
you can hear music and other content that it so unlike the template broadcasting
that is heard on most terrestrial radio. These stations are the hard work of real
 human beings who use Live365 to share their vision with the world. It's a home
 for musical discovery because many of these stations play emerging artists that
terrestrial stations are reluctant to take a chance on. It would be a great loss
for this to all go away."

We thank you for being part of the  family and hope for the best in 2016.

So what happened?

he new ruling of the CRB prohibits issue of any small webcaster licenses after January 31st 2016.
