    Live365 Done Month End

    rumored that the service is being forced into early retirement because of new royalty rates that digital radio producers now need to adhere to. Late in 2015, the Copyright Royalty Board handed down its decision about what internet radio services will need to pay per stream, and it apparently hurt Live365 so much that it can no longer afford for the rights to play music. Companies like Pandoralobbied hard for the court to lower royalty rates for the next five years, and while certain kinds of streams will cost internet radio stations and services less, it willcost platforms more overall to continue to play music. This may not be the only reason why Live365 is going out of business, but it appears to have been a factor.

    Live365 launched in the summer of 1999 and was immediately a success. Nothing quite like it had ever been tried online on such a scale, and people around the world reacted positively. The company allowed the average, everyday music fan to become a DJ, turning everyone into a potential influencer.
