I want to start an Internet Radio. To pay for the licensing fees to ASCAP, BMI and SECSAC will cost about $1500 for a year.  My question is, if I show proof to Spotify that I paid for these music licensing fees, could I use Spotify as my music server or supplier of music to broadcast music over my internet radio station?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

Spotify is licensed to you for personal, non-commercial usage of their services, so in my eyes this would still be against those terms even if you paid the relevant extra licensing, since it is not for personal usage (and if your radio generates income, then its not non-commercial either). 

 

Have a read at the Spotify Terms and Conditions, specifically section 4 for more detail about licensing.
