Do you need any licence for your Internet radio station?

Unlike terrestrial radio, actually you don’t need to own a licence to stream. However, if your radio station is going to be playing commercial music, then you may need a licence, otherwise your radio station may be classified as a pirate station and against the law. Also all music and stream licence may be different according to your country law.

This will explain all. Also the American stream licensing is no longer valid.

Licensing is DEFINATELY required in Canada if you play commercial music. If anyone here needs any help in Canada -- I've been licensed for more than 5 years and can help navigate for you. 

At least in Canada, its relatively straightforward and inexpensive.
