sounds like a great project.
But you know, just because a song is CC-licensed doesn't mean that the
GEMA won't charge you of any fees. The GMEA sees their contracts as
exclusive and some artists have GEMA contracts but nevertheless offer
CC-licensed downloads...

The criteria for adding a stream are quite simple: our developers have
to like it. ;-)
But I think a CC-stream gets some extra credit. As we just tagged
2.4.2 now our devs have some time to listen to it.

PS: I'm also the moderator of the Free Music Charts @darkeradio.com,
maybe you want to use those songs and encourage your listeners to
take part in the votting, too? See mail signature for the latest show.
