Swing Street Radio Copyright Notice

Copyright and/or Licensed Material(s) Notice:

Musical compositions that are not in the public domain are licensed through ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) and BMI (Broadcast Music Incorporated). The statutory licenses relevant to our program streaming service (as stipulated in sections 112 and 114 of the Copyright Act) are licensed through SoundExchange. 

Photographs and images are either trademarked by Swing Street Radio and/or The Swing & Big Band Preservation Society Incorporated, or have been licensed for use to The Swing & Big Band Preservation Society Incorporated by the copyright holder/licensing agency. All other photographs or images are believed to be in the public domain, and are not otherwise covered by any copyrights, and no copyright markings can be seen at full view. Works are displayed in the public domain because they were published in the United States between 1923 and 1963 and although there may or may not have been an original copyright notice, the copyright was not renewed.

Program material is believed to be either in the public domain, or is not otherwise covered by any copyrights, since they were NOT copyrighted when presented, nor was any attempt to place them under such copyright protection made when the window of opportunity for such existed in 1978-1979 when the copyright law regarding such recordings changed.

It is not the intent of Swing Street Radio or its parent organization, the Swing & Big Band Preservation Society Incorporated, to infringe any copyright. Please notify us by e-mail with evidence that you own the copyright of any of these recordings or compositions, images or photographs, and we will promptly remove those items.
