Cybro Radio is an Independent, Internet only Radio Station that generates no revenue from artist to broadcast, stream, post on demand, podcast or blog their music or videos. This station is free for all independent artists, and in order to keep it that way, we inforce our DIRECT LICENSE (Music Performance Agreement). Cybro Radio has a License agreement with 100% of the artist's (copyright holders) who's music and/or video is broadcast, streamed, podcasted or blogged from this station. The license agreement gives Cybro Radio the legal right to broadcast, stream, live, on demand, podcast or blog an artist's (copyright holders) music and/or video, on a royalty free basis for both Musical Compositions and Sound Recordings. Once the license agreement has been received, and the music and/or video has been published to the internet, the Cybro Radio Station will not be held responsible for any claims or disputes, links made by others, feeds to Ipods, Itunes, and default mp3 players, the removal of current links, dead links, or any other feeds or links from any search engine, free-for-all or any other directories linking back to Cybro Radio. It is meant to be enjoyed by listeners around the world, however, any duplication, downloads, recording, or re-broadcasting of any nature is a violation of copyright laws.
Here's some quick background:
Congress passed a law in October 1998 called the Digital Millennium
Copyright Act (DMCA), which established a new "sound recordings
performance royalty" that webcasters must pay to record labels,
similar to the royalty that both broadcast radio and Internet radio
have to pay to composers of songs. The DMCA does require that the
royalties collected are split evenly between the owner of sound
recording copyright and the performers on that particular recording.
However, this is not to be confused with ownership (or the "exclusive
right") of those copyrights.
In the vast majority of cases, the owner of the copyright of these
sound recordings is the record label. Artists can give us all the
permission they want...but if they don't actually own the copyright
to the sound recording, it doesn't mean anything. But there are some
forward-thinking unsigned artists who are willing to forgo streaming
royalties to get their music played by webcasters. This is why we need an
agreement from the actual copyright holder. (To stream on a licensed royality free basis."royalties waiver")
Other agreements in the License simply gives us the
right to use your artwork (CD Cover or online photo) to post all links to you (your website or online store)
and to link to your music or video clip.
Licensed artists are eligible for a listing in our CybroLinks Section, Station page photo/link
post, Control Panel photo/link post (if qualified) Posting Rotation, as well
as live streams and on demand clips.
We based our license on discussions with performing rights organizations, however,
you may want to check with ASCAP, BMI, RIAA, CARP and others. If you are not the only copyright holder,
we would need a License from each copyright holder. If you do not wish to return
a signed License, please let us know
and we'll return your music and/or video.
