Funemployment Radio Episode Music Licensing

Hi everyone!

Just a quick programming note that we wanted to get out to everyone. To simply state a very complicated issue, the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) is who we have been paying music-licensing rates to, in order to maintain our music-based shows on the Network. We paid under a special agreement for small webcasters, which allowed us to pay an appropriate amount to artists, while still being able to have some great music shows that exposed a lot of people to music they may not have otherwise heard. 

However, as of..well, now, that provision has been removed under the new CRB rates established for 2016-2020. The new rates that apply to small broadcasters are now essentially the same that services like Pandora pay. While Pandora has a huge profit margin and can pay these new rates, smaller broadcasters are unfortunately being phased out. We still hold out hope that a provision can be added in, but for the time being, we must suspend music-based shows. It's unfortunate and hopefully this will change soon. In the mean time, we of course have our many amazing talk-based shows for you, so nothing changes on that front! We believe in local and small broadcasting networks like our own and thank you so much for your support!

Here is an article that also explains it a little more:

Thanks so much!
