Legislation To Save Internet Radio


As you know, internet radio is under attack by the RIAA. Royalty rates for webcasters have been drastically increased and these unfair, unequal new rates come due on May 15. Making matters worse, the rates are retroactive to Jan 1, 2006, so pretty much every webcaster is already in financial trouble. The majority of webcasters will be forced to silence their stations -- we needs the hel of our loyal listeners!

Representatives Jay Inslee (D-WA) and Donald Manzullo (R-IL) have introduced the Internet Radio Equality Act, legislation that could keep your favorite radio streams flowing. Please call your members of congress and tell them to co-sponsor this bill (or else) by clicking here: call your representative!

Thank you.
