When fccfreeradio.com joining Live365, we automatically covered  all ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC licenses in the United States, as well as SOCAN and Re:Sound for Canada, and PPL and PRS for Music for the U.K. Our coverage is provided through finalized agreements, interim agreements, and consent decrees with the respective collection societies. These licenses are essential to running an online radio station, and they form a good portion of our monthly budget cost. Listening from our station page in the Live365 directory and from our custom pop-out player will only be available to listeners in the United States, Canada, and the U.K.
