Congratulations!

However, would it not be a good idea to maybe also keep doing dynamic or batch importing from sources with Creative Commons licensed metadata?

I understand that you might not want to overwrite anything automatically, but would it not be a good idea to fill fields that are not already filled?

There are many different sources like that providing metadata under Creative Commons license, especially for music, and just MetaBrainz Foundation for example have loads of similar projects that gather meta data around music and artists under Creative Commons: "MetaBrainz operates MusicBrainz, Cover Art Archive, AcousticBrainz, ListenBrainz, CritiqueBrainz, BookBrainz and the esoteric MessyBrainz project. All of our projects are open source, open data and are community curated. MetaBrainz is a California based 501.c.3 non-profit with many supporters from the music and technology world. Our main office is in Barcelona, Spain. Our flagship project is MusicBrainz -- the data from MusicBrainz is used by AcoustID, Google, Amazon, BBC, Last.FM, Universal Music, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, TicketMaster, MusixMatch, Leaf.fm, and a number of other companies from all over the world. These company provide financial support that allows us to continue hacking on our open source projects."

Could TheAudioDB.com not aggregate and consolidate data from several different sources as well as have its own cumminity data on top of all that?

That would be similar to a non-commercial version of OneMusicAPI ( OneMusicAPI.com ) http://www.onemusicapi.com
