Licensing rules by country
Mixcloud is a licensed Internet radio service with agreements with various Collecting Societies around the world (who in turn pay royalties to labels and artists based on their individual recording and publishing deals).
These agreements mean that you can upload your radio show or DJ mix set legally, with rights cleared and royalties paid on your behalf - but there are certain rules which specify what can be made available to listen to:
US Rules per upload:
- Maximum 4 tracks by an artist (and max 3 consecutively)
- Maximum 3 tracks from an album (and max 2 consecutively)
- Maximum 3 listens to a show during any 2 week period
As DJs and radio presenters ourselves, we understand that this may be frustrating, and we are working on new frameworks with rights-holders to build a better service for everyone.
