Hace nada me ha llegado un mail de Pandora www.Pandora.com, la web radio en la que puedes escuchar mucha música y con el cual he descubierto infinidad de grupos que ni conocía.
Ésta empresa reproduce música en streaming por internet dentro de la legalidad con las licencias que les han otorgado los artistas y discográficas varias.
Pero, al parecer, al ser una empresa pequeña, en EU, y tener las todas las licencias necesarias, al parecer, éstas solo sirven dentro de su país, vamos, que no tienen poder internacional.
Así, que se va a terminar una radio buena de verdad, en la que escuchaba la música que me gustaba y no lo que echan en las radios de este país, que (a mi gusto) no me gusta nada.
Os dejo el mail, en inglés, pues no tengo tiempo ahora de traducirlo.dear Pandora Listener,
today we have some extremely disappointing news todo share with you. Due todo international licensing constraints, we are deply, deply lo siento todo say that we must begin proactively preventing Access todo Pandora streaming service for most countries outside of the u. S.
it is dificult todo convey just how disappointing this is for us. Our visión remains todo eventually make Pandora a truly global service, but for the time being, we can no longer continúe as we have ben. As a small company, the best chance we have of realizing our dream of Pandora all around the world is todo grow as the licensing hola allows.
we show your IP address is xx.xxx.xxx.xxx, which indicates you are listening from spain. if you believe you are seing this by mistake, we ofer our sincere apologies and ask that you por favor Reply todo this email.
delivery of Pandora is based on proper licensing from the people who created the music - We have always believed in honoring the guidelines as determined by legislators and regulators, artists and songwriters, and the Labels and publicadores they work with. In the u. S, there is a federal statute that provides this license for all the music streamed on Pandora. Unfortunately, there is no equivalent license outside the u. S, and there is no global licensing organization todo enable us todo legitimately ofer Pandora around the world. Other than in the u. K, we have not yet ben able todo make significant progress in our eforts todo obtain a suficient number of international licenses at terms that would enable us todo run a viable business. The volume of listening on Pandora makes it a very expensive service todo run. Streaming costs are very high, and since our inception, we have ben making Publishing and performance royalty payments for every song we play.
until now, we have not ben able todo tell where a Listener is based, relying only on (*.zip) code información provided upon registration. We are now able todo recognize a Listener country of origin based on the IP address from which they are accessing the service. Consequently, on may 3rd, we Will begin blocking Access todo Pandora todo listeners from your country. We are very sad todo have todo do this, but there is no other alternative.
we Will be posting updates on our blog regarding our ongoing efort todo launch in other countries, so por favor stay in touch. We Will kep a récord of your existing stations and bookmarked artists and songs, so that when we are able todo launch in your country, they Will be waiting for you. We deply share your sense of disappointment and greatly appreciate your Understanding. .
