    How to gather music for a site like Pandora or spotify?

    I've been searching through the inter-webs for a solution for getting the millions of songs needed for a site like Pandora. I've applied for access to Grooveshark's API but if that falls through, is my only other option to manually find the songs and store them?

    Simply, Pandora pay millions ($100 mil+) of dollars for licenses to music and get themselves out of their insane debt using ads and subscriptions. There is no easy way to just have the licenses of free use to thousands of songs.

    Putting aside all the legal issues and fees what are some ways of getting a collection that big?

    Hacking into Pandora and stealing them directly would be a good way. Or hacking into the various publishers, of course. You could also steal the $100M and then license them I suppose. How about create a site asking folks to upload their music, and tell them you'll pay them $10 a song - then don't pay them.

    "Putting aside all legal issues" does tend to open a lot of doors!
