When a service decides to use the statutory license that we administer, it must first file a “Notice of Use” with the Copyright Office. One of the signs of the growth in this space is that services file Notices of Use when they plan to launch service. In just the last few months, the following services have told the Copyright Office that they intend to rely on the statutory license:
- BDR Free Radio
- Gila/Mimbres Community Radio
- Harvard Broadcasting, Inc. (Harvard Community Radio)
- Harvest Radio
- Joy FM Guam
- Level 1209 The Volume (East Texas Baptist University)
- Metropolitan State University of Denver
- Nebraska Rural Radio Association – KNEB-AM, KNEB-FM, KRVN-AM, KRVN-FM, KTIC-AM, KTIC-FM
- Rockitfm.com (93.5 Rock It FM)
- Roots Radio
- Spotify USA, Inc.
- WCSU (Chicago State University)
- WDCE.com (University of Richmond)
- WNEK 105.1 FM (Western New England University)
This is in addition to the hundreds that have filed over time; a complete list (updated periodically) may be found here, provided by the Copyright Office.
Of course, not all services launch right away, and sometimes they stop streaming. change their business, or consolidate with other companies. If you want to know which services have actually started paying SoundExchange under the statutory license, view our “Who Pays SoundExchange” post.
