a simple lyrics site
Registered: Jun 27, 2012
It's not clear to me how the licensing of lyrics works via the 'rosetta stone' api. Is it possible to:
construct a very simple website that allows people to search for lyrics by artist / song title
request lyrics from the echonest API
cache those lyrics on the server so that google can crawl the static page
run this site as a non-profit thats purpose is to display lyrics without a lot of other junk on the page
accept donations as a society to help defray hosting costs
Is this free to do in a non-commercial sense?
What requirements would there be in terms of recording and reporting page-views of different lyric sites.

kalinh - we do not license any lyric data directly, you will need to work out the commercial terms with our lyric partners:
LyricFind and MusixMatch. Read the sandbox info for details on commercial use of their lyric data.
