The VirtualDJ Pro License does not cover any royalties at all.

It just allows you to make money with that program by using it for Clubs, Shows and Radio where you can expect an income.

I don't know what you guys are always reading in thoose disclaimers but it's surely not a license to play and stream copyrighted music you didn't purchase

 

I know it doesn't cover any royalties for the tracks played, that is what I said, also just purchasing the tracks doesn't cover royalties for streaming them either.

Didn't mean your post. Just a general thought why people think VDJ license would cover everything.

Its no "Get out of Prison" Monopoly card seriously 😎

DJ licensing

 

wtf over LOL

 

so Virtual DJ Pro 8 has a content unlimited license agreement that you pay for monthly.   I have this but i  have no idea what good it is cause there's no popo here checking for it.   I have seen endless rants about DJ's and licensing here but i subscribe to a paradigm that some sheeple will NOT get or understand.  perhaps it's because i am from Utah where the government is to be distrusted and people are freer than most states especially the peoples Democratic Republic of California. I take a more Swedish approach to media so here goes........

 

Music is great and has become more electronic instead of vinyl like in the olden days.  By electronic i mean the modulation of electrons by tools such as CD's and internet files.  Electrons are a physical entityand creation by god and should not be  taxed or controlled for the  financial gain of capitalist pigs.  Once a song is out there in the public domain it is no longer to be controlled by fabricated laws dictated by the fat cats manipulating laws and control  by the  bureaucrats of government.    If an artist wants to make money from their songs they should charge for concerts but NOT gain after they send it out using gods electrons.     God made electrons and humans have developed ways to modulate those electrons with  tools like recorders and CD's and digital representations of the original air wave modulations that affect our ears.     Air is free and so should be electrons.

 

Electrons are like water which is free and available to use by humans.   To gain financially from electrons is a violation  of gods will and anyone charging  for electronic modulation is blaspheming and  will go to hell.  Electrons and forces of electrons are  an example of physics which is god's word and should not be taxed by them that wish to make a profit using nature and natural forces especially when  it is a  control that some humans will NOT agree to.   

 

In  america we are free to do what we want and should NOT allow the government to control shit just so  a few will profit.   It is my right and privilege to fight ignoble processes and  tea taxes that are unfair and demeaning to freedom  and  spirit.    The man will NOT beat me down as long as i have  a breath to take.

 

if a DJ is charging for using others mixes it becomes more of a gray area but who does that here? LOL    To use the electrons to run a speaker or earbuds is  a free exchange of the water of electrons and must not be controlled by force of laws and  fabricated agreements.

 

steps off her soapbox

waits for the jack booted  thugs to break down her door

loads and locks

 

Cuni have said it better luv, the commercialization of music is sumit some greedy fockers came op wi to make money out of honest musicians, now musicians once op on a time where entertainers who wandered land and sea to entertain people for a coin, free meal and dry bed to sleep, they where bohemians, but all them peeps making money out of poor musicians are nothing but greedy fockers who cani get real jobs. I like musicians, I just don't like the greedy feckers making all the money, I rather pay a full fee to a musician than to the company that represents him/her.  

  Music is a way of, by and for people to cope with their lives, hard n harsh, tis always been a part of the human through out the ages. so spread the luv  n let's not talk about who has wot and who hasni it, because in the end tis all about spreading luv, joy n happiness through out the music.    :)

That is a great source of information yet some of it is a bit misleading or incomplete. I understand you might not have wanted to go into all the details and intricacies of licensing but, for the benefit of the streamers here I think they should be given a bit more in depth explanation.

Until recently I've ran a legal internet radio station in Canada and the USA and paid my royalties to all of the royalty collectors.

Streaming music over the Internet requires the streamer to pay royalties for each track played for each stream they send it through.



That is partly true. Depending on the station's income and expenses and total listening hours and aggregated listening hours.

Under certain conditions you can only pay a flat fee and be covered to stream music in the USA and Canada.

Each radio station including Internet radio stations are required to submit a list of all these ISRC codes to their countries agency complete with payment of the royalties owing, they are then distributed to the relevant agencies around the world which then forward them to the track owners.

All done from information in the ISRC codes.

Same rule applies as what I said above.

The real problem in 3dx is to know who's listening and from where so that you can pay all the appropriate collection agencies.

I think you see where I'm going with this.. What if listeners on a given day are from the UK? And the next day from Spain? You going to pay all the agencies?

As far as I know there is no company that offer a world coverage.

Furthermore, people seem to think that by ripping a video from YouTube and then paying royalties that it makes it legal.

It is not, the track has been obtained illegally without any consent from the label representing the artists or the artists themselves.

If people want to play the real legal way.. Obtain the music legally and pay the royalties to the appropriate agencies then block the countries to which you don't pay royalties to.

I don't think any of the legal preachers in here or in the various rooms on 3dx do that.. yet, ask YOU to be legit in streaming music.

Furthermore, a blanket coverage covers all DJs under a certain banner. So one group could pay the royalties for their group and then split the costs between DJs. It's a logistical nightmare but alot easier than having 10 DJs paying full licensing everytime.

Legal <> Lawful    or does it?   or are we all sheep submitting to the laws imposed on us by others?   are we really going to allow our minds and actions to be controlled by jackbooted thugs who   will hammer us into submission so that others can drain our souls and minds turning us into drones?

I have learned a lot how to behave in forums from the horrible experiences I had in the past in other FORUMS, I have been banned for a total of 56 DAYS out of 365 DAYS and even lost my 3 years old avatar and a total of 11 rooms and all the products I had bought. I also received more than 32 warning with my new avatar and had been banned for 2 months, the conditions were so bad for me that had I not quit the game I would have been disabled. I have learned a lot about FORUMS when I was going through all of this. I have learned that whichever game up play the FORUM RULES never change, they are more or less the same. I have learned that the best way to avoid a conflict is either to hide oneself in an alternative AVATAR or take a break, for if you are persistent you will get banned. The fact is that real world has become too hard for some of us and we escape this virtual worlds, where we seek to get what we couldn't achieve in the real world, family, friends. love, support etc. But we forget one thing and that one thing is that BRAINS never change, thinking pattern remains the same because changing overworlds don't change people's mindsets, which has become venomous. 

 

It is important to forget the past and think of the future as Sri Krishna says in GITA, "While speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor the dead."

DJ Etiquette

 

If you don't like the tunes  don't be an ass and try to make a scene in the room trying to diss someone who has taken the time and effort to do the mixxing and streaming stuff that costs money.   just perform a UDJI and leave.    UDJI = Ultimate DJ Insult

You only  show your own arrogance and childishness by making a point that most will probably NOT appreciate or agree to.  Not everyone likes the same genres.

 

And DJ's, don't be spewing your shit over mic trying to bolster you own insecurity and ego by blathering over the tunes.  and if you try to sing you  def not show professionalism and   appreciation for the artists tune you are spinning

 

If DJ's are in an event they should stay in the event and hear the other DJ's sets and support them and support the gig.    I saw a DJ once that spun and then went and opened a competing room after her gig cause she was all butt hurt because she didn't get the entire hour alloted to her

 

Stay within the limits of your time slot.    trim tunes in order to do so and have additional tunes incase the following DJ has stream issues

 

Before streaming, have your  stream running and tested and looping just prior to the transition so it is  seamless.  Provide a countdown  just before the last tune so the next DJ can be starting  precisely  so there are now gaps.   

 

A room host should NOT press play until the normal end of the song.   I use the Windows mixer to switch to 3DX sounds to hear the tunes everyone else is.   There is a 10 to 20 second lag   from your puter to the 3DX radio so start your stream at 20 seconds tp end and the room host will switch  when  the song ends and it should be seamless.  Transitions are a fine art and should be practiced and mastered to  prove mastery and professionalism.

 

after your set leave the Group chat that the host has set up so that you don't bother the coordination of the time slots and transitions,   The room hostess should have a group chat running ONLY for DJ's to aid transitions and coordination of streams

 

and while on the subject of Group chats,  It is extremely rude to be in a  group chat  blathering away and  not allow others to see your witty repartee.   It excludes others and is  offensive to the others in the room trying to keep local chat lively.  It is gang behavior and so constitutes thuggery.  perhaps a separate  diary entry is  warranted here.  My 4th divorce was due to a group chat  going on excluding my bestie who was  hosting the room.

Scheduling Partys.   

 

it is hard not to conflict with other events already scheduled but please check forums before scheduling an event  There are sooo many DJ's now and the cadre should be professional and NOT  try to confict with others trying to have a good time.  I remember a NOW defunct group that did that on purpose tio try to diminis room numbers.   OX was led by a tyrant that thought his shit didn't stink and every one left him cause he caused soo  much drama and disdain for him and the members of the group.   be nice .  do unto others as you would have do unto you.  or something like that.   

 

Communications is key to us all having fun.  Leave arrogance in the real world

 

when scheduling a party in forums it is good to  post the DJ lineup and time slots so  it is understood how long the event will lasy so that it provides no conflictions

Sadly this is a thing which wont ever stop around here. I agree to everything you say, but as a friend said to me once: "Other rooms wont be remain closed just because you are doing a party"
 
I mean thats totally correct, thus we know there are several people in here who enjoy to burn your parade and they have alot of people covering their back, so they will probably go to their room and support this room. The chain of this we all know as "Room Snowball Effect" is people that dont go to the forums or dont know thoose at all, will go to the room as it gets interesting as soon as a certain number is in that said room.
 
So no matter how good you are, or no matter how much time you spend into preparing an event. It doesent matter really... I had that happening here several times here too.

 

Funny thing is: They can say they have had it planning for some time too... ironically some thread is always launched like 2 hours before the actual event mostly with some sloppy slapped together pixelated JPEG and with surprisingly the same start time. Then some random words like one totally put no effort. Sounds like decent pre-planning really. This must have been taken ages to put together, especially the low quality JPEG.

 

So yep I totally buy that...same day, same time... wow yeah thats pretty much coincidence with having all that different time zones in mind and stuff. But sorry I smell Counter-Party.

 

So in conlusion there will always be someone out there with more friends then you that crashes your party. I even wondered what made people go to ther other as I call them "Counter-Party". Huge Laggy Room with Music that make ears bleed.

 

So yeah... obviously some things we are used to from the real world, dont apply in 3DX.

  • Quality
  • Preparation
  • Straight Concept
  • Nice Atmosphere

 

It really doesent matter... All that matters is how many follower and supporters you have and the rest works itself out magically, no matter how hard you suck or dont. Its sad but it is what it is.

Limitations on clothing options in 3DX has been a complaint by many but  ii don't mind.   Peopl can still attain a somewhat unique look  but there waill always be doppelgangers to contend with.    In IMVU there is a huge catalog of  items to customize an avi.  creators can make items for sale there.   I had jewelry and skins and  200 pair of boots and heels along with  sooo many out fits i couldn;t keep track of my stuff.  i had  20 hairstyles and even commissioned creators to  make their hairstype with my hair color.

 

As you add  items to your avi , in IMVY, it loads up your avi with KBS that can tend to cause lag for people with lame lappys an puters.    this not good for a pleasing experiance for some and the ability to dress yourself up can tend to alienate them that are not rich and can not buy stuff in the IMVU catalog.

 

Here, with the limitations of outfits,. many of us look the same which tends to make the chat more important.  it levels the playing field.   makes us all equal so that it is our minds and wit that shine instead of our jewelry and tattoos LOL
