ok...i am going to throw a spanner in the works, as i have found
this conversation really interesting and i would like to know more...what
happens if you make music that is:
1. released under gpl / open sudio licence (EFF)
2. is in ogg vorbis format
3. is _not_ released in album form but as individual tracks
does this mean running a streaming station that plays this content and
this content only skips all legal potholes that we have so far seen very
interestingly discussed on this list?
ie -> no format royalties (unlike mp3), no 'inalienable' copyright rights
that force unwanted restrictions on the propagation of your content, no
limit on replay of more than 3 album tracks....
<p>anyone find anything that could upset this slightly utopian scenario (not
counting amount of content available that meets all these criteria ;-) )
