Royalty Negotiations Drag On

David Oxenford, representing a small group of internet broadcasters, reports on the latest negotiations between the group he represents (Small Commerical Webcasters) and SoundExchange. Without stating it directly Oxenford makes it clear that negotiations over new royalty rates and related issues are going slowly and will require action by Congress.

At least the SCW group gets to negotiate. The rest of us are left hanging, or are sent laughable non-offers designed to make it look to Congress and the press like SoundExchange is really trying to work things out.
