For a long time now I have been downloading and promoting music artists from jamendo.com, They are all Creative commons Licensed so legally free to download etc. I mainly promote the artists through 3 creative license only stations online and of course I listen to the majority of them for personal pleasure. Now one must note if you want to use any of the music in a commercial manor unless they state otherwise you must still obtain a license via Jamendo Licensing. Commercial meaning for profit, gain etc.
Creative Common Licensing has open the door for music enthusiast and artists alike, hobby internet radios across the world have a chance to gain new and innovative music for their music library and playlists. for more information on Creative commons licensing go to https://creativecommons.org/
