Just a couple of things you should know about us…
First..Get Rockin’ Canada is a non-profit station.
Nuthin’ but music 24/7!
WE DO NOT GENERATE ANY REVENUE FROM ADS so we don’t play any.
We pay a monthly fee to TorontoCast to help cover licensing and royalty payments to SOCAN.
SOCAN has deals with all the major rights organizations in the world, so our stream is legal and artists and composers are compensated, even if the artists aren’t Canadian.
This is from the SOCAN website:
A SOCAN licence gives you permission to use copyright-protected musical works from anywhere around the world. Through agreements with international performing rights organizations, SOCAN issues licences for all music used in public by businesses in Canada, no matter to which society the creators belong. SOCAN then transfers the corresponding monies to the appropriate society, and vice versa.
More information about licensing can be found at Torontocast and SOCAN
