Well good for you Monty!

I personally believe that a broadcaster or podcaster when casting via the internet should be able to play whatever he/she desires. The RIAA and related goons should not be allowed to tell us what we can play or how we can play it! As I see it, nothing is being stolen, and to me the only way for us to show these goons what we think of their crazy tactics of trying to control every last little thing we do with their content, is to not give in to their demands. Play the hell out of any music of theirs you want on your podcasts. I'm a broadcaster over at ACB radio interactive, and I enjoy being part of such a project. I'm certainly not going to allow them to tell me what I can play and what I can't. do you realize that if I gave in to their rediculous demands, I couldn't play 98 percent of the files I have? In fact, I'm sure if they could they would pass some crazy law saying if my files were in any NonDRM'd format that it'd be illegal for me to have, even if I ripped them from my own purchased CD's! They are getting way out of hand in my view, and if we give in to their every demand, they'll be getting what they want, and that drives me up the wall! I'm going to continue to have fun broadcasting on interactive, and I can only hope that some day the consumer will somehow some way win against the truly beyond greedy RIAA!
