thanks a lot for your comment. I am not an expert in media law but since some weeks I know that I have to purchase a licence to run a side like this - but I don't agree with these conditions. Musicians should use their own music whereever and whenever they want and they should have total control about their music. In Germany musicians haven't this total control yet if they are member of the GEMA. That is maybe against a common unique European Law. Therefore I am not willing to purchase a licence from the GEMA for this website.

I am also a member of GEMA, but I am not satisfied with their policy, I think musicians should have control over their music in a way Nestor Kornblum and Knud Riishøjgård describe it. I would be delighted when the lack of sovereignity for german musicians belonging to GEMA would be solved via European Law.
