Legal Issues Shutdown WCKG Podcast

radiomonitorlogo.gifIt may come as no surprise to some of you reading this, but a Radio Broadcaster turned Podcaster has been forced to shut down his podcast. Apparently the content within the podcast was not covered in the agreement between Infinity Broadcasting and BMI, ASCAP, SESAC, etc.

“Chicago radio veteran and current Infinity talk WCKG afternoon host Steve Dahl has stopped making his show available as a podcast, a practice he started late last month, after discovering that podcasting is not covered under InfinityÕs agreements with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC. Since downloads of the show are also not considered Òstreaming,? they have been halted as well.”
