The iRadio Get Heard Network Newsletter

I thought I'd post the contents of the Get Heard Network newsletter in case you want to check it out, but don't feel like signing up for it.  Hopefully, the HTML won't complete screw up the site.  The email is from shopmotorola[at]messagemoto.com. (Are the email lists shared with Moto's online store mailing list?)  Anyway, here it is:

We know, we know, we never write, we never call. But we’ve been busy working on the service that can provide you with access to a nationwide audience of music and talk fans — Get Heard Network. In fact, our launch is just around the corner and it’s time for you to get ready to participate.
 
   
 
 WHO CAN JOIN? 
Any musician, independent label or podcaster with something to play, sing or say. That is…as long as you own the rights to the programming. No taking credit for other people’s work allowed.
 
 
 
 HOW DO I GET STARTED? 
When you join you will be creating your own radio station. Stations should be at least 3 hours in length and updated frequently, at least weekly, to keep your audience interested. You may want to get a jump on things by familiarizing yourself with audio encoding, RSS and XSPF. However, we know you want to focus on the music so details on how to publish your station will be provided soon, along with a list of companies that can help you get up and running without coughing up too much coin.
 
 
 
 HOW DO I GET PAID? 
Oh, sure, now we’ve got your attention. It’s true, as a member of Get Heard Network you get paid for your broadcast. We make payments directly to SoundExchange and publishing rights organizations such as ASCAP, BMI and SESAC, which in turn pay you. The current statutory rate is $.007 cents per play. That’s unlike traditional AM/FM radio which pays zilch to SoundExchange artists and labels. So make sure you’ve registered with SoundExchange and your preferred publishing rights organizations.
 
 
 
 HOW CAN I MAKE MY STATION UNIQUE? 
Spice up the listening experience for your fans by including interviews with the band, behind-the-scenes stories and exclusive tracks. But don’t just take our suggestions, you’re creative types, use your imagination and make great radio.
 
 
 
 WHAT'S NEXT? 
Keep your eyes on your inbox for our next newsletter, loaded with info on technical allies, breaking iRadio news, and answers to common questions.
