RadioDNS Consults on Standard Accord for Stations, Auto Makers

Will create a common agreement on how stations’ content should be presented in the dashboard

RadioDNS is reaching out to radio stations and automotive manufacturers worldwide to create a common agreement on how radio stations’ content should be presented in the dashboard.

The ‘Standard Terms of Use’ is a template agreement for radio stations and automotive manufacturers. It eliminates the need to explicitly sign contractual agreements, explains the organization.

“The proposed terms were drawn up  after discussions with broadcaster and manufacturer members of RadioDNS, and based on the success of the Creative Commons licensing model, which allows content creators to distribute their content widely, but still retain control on how it’s used and shown,” RadioDNS stated in a release.

The goal, according to the consortium, is for the majority of radio stations and automotive manufacturers to agree to the standard terms, making it easier to create a large network of content without significant legal and paperwork costs.

“We want radio stations to use the consultation period to tell us if they could offer their content to automotive manufacturers under these proposed terms, and if not, why not,” said Nick Piggott, RadioDNS project director. “We’ll use that feedback to modify the proposed terms so that as many radio stations as possible can adopt them.”

The consultation document can be found here. Responses must be received by April 12. RadioDNS says it will publish an update after reviewing the responses.
