Why would the rights owners not want you to broadcast song information? Presumably, by rights owners you mean record companies, and by information, you mean artist/album/title sort of stuff? Like DAB/DTT/DSAT text?

I believe – and I may be wrong – that record companies are nervous of anything that might allow someone to automate the ripping of music from the radio and putting it online. Sending out track information alongside the songs, as well as indicating when a song changes, might allow people to do that kind of thing. Putting cover information alongside would make that even more simple.
