Broadcasters to have access to musicians' tracks.
Internet radio network Live365 and online musicians community GarageBand.com have announced a plan under which hundreds of tracks will become available to Live365's broadcasting community.
Live365 will add top GarageBand tracks, which are determined through the site's listener rating system, to the Live365 music library, a repository of songs with "click to add" functionality, enabling broadcasters to add the tracks to their playlists.
GarageBand will waive digital performance royalties on the available tracks. In return, GarageBand artists will receive exposure and airplay to a potential audience of millions.
Live365 will also add links that encourage listeners to purchase downloads or CDs of GarageBand artists' tracks.
