Online radio is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than on-the-air radio. You MUST
follow the RIAA guidelines for non-interactive broadcasts for online
radio, and you do not have to follow these for on-the-air radio.
This isn't a simple variation. There are completely different rules.
For instance, if you fulfill a request, it must be ONE HOUR after the
requrest was made (I _think_). Not to mention the normal 'can't play y
songs by z in x hours' stuff still applies.
Even the companies that simply let users Fast Forward were getting sued
by the RIAA.
It's a dumb set of rules, a dumb law, and the RIAA is doing a disservice
to artists (especially non-major-label artists) by imposing these rules.
Unfortunately, it's a law, and until we get rid of it, we're fucked.
