WDAB online broadcasts ceased as of January 31, 2016
The Copyright Royalty Board, the governing entity for establishing the sound recording royalty rates that are paid to copyright holders, has published the new rates for 2016-20. The previous provisions for small webcasters to opt for a percentage of revenue model were not renewed.
The current provisions ended at the close of 2015. The absence of this license will make legally streaming copyrighted musical content prohibitively expensive for Westworld Digital Audio Broadcasting Inc. (WDAB)
Because the CRB ruling handed down in December, 2015 did NOT renew or address the expiration of the small webcaster percentage of revenue plans, WDAB ceased online streaming broadcasts as of January 31, 2016.
