You must have your own API key to make use of the R&R Music API. To obtain a key, register for an account.
The example method calls in this set of documentation use a guest API key that is for demonstration purposes only and should not be used for any other application.
We want to be as flexible as possible with our API and data feeds; if you have an interesting use of our platform, we want to help. Here are some basic ground rules that all developers should abide by when using the API and data feeds.
Use common sense. If you're unsure, ask us. - Our terms of service allow for most reasonable non-commercial uses. If you're doing something you think might be a problem or if you have any questions, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Read the Terms of Service. - Before you start developing anything using the R&R Music API, you need to read and abide by the full Terms of Service.
Do not use the API or feeds for commercial use without talking to us. - The R&R Music API is free for non-commercial purposes. To use them commercially, talk to us and we will go over the licensing options. In either case, we request that you give us proper branding and attribution when using our data. For commercial use, we have standard terms & conditions that we can share with you. We want to be flexible and support many uses of the platform, so just contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about whether your use is commercial.
Credit. - Please give us due credit when using the R&R MusicAPI and feeds. Display an R&R Musict logo available on the logos page along with a link to http://dev.randrmusic.com/ when displaying content provided by the API or feeds.
Don't do anything illegal. - Don't use the API or feeds in connection with anything that promotes or takes part in any products, services, or materials that we would consider malicious, hateful, or illegal.
Don't pretend the data is yours. - You may not sell, lease, share, transfer, or sublicense the API or feeds or access to the API/feeds to any other party than the API key holder. You can cache our data to lighten bandwidth and improve latency, but don't crawl/spider our API or data feeds and make a copy of our data to steal our mojo.
Help us manage server and bandwidth costs. - Don't use the API or feeds in a manner that exceeds reasonable request volume, or constitutes excessive or abusive usage as determined by R&R Music. Don't register for multiple API keys in an attempt to cirumvent rate limits.
Respect the Terms of Service of our Partners. - Some of the data returned by the R&R Music API may be subject to 3rd party terms of service. Make sure you understand and abide by these terms.
