Default Online Radio Needs Your Help Now!!!

Do you listen to music over the internet?


Wisconsin Congressman Sensenbrenner today introduced in Congress a bill to provide a six month stay of all obligations to pay the unfair CARP performance fee royalties.

The bill number is HR 5469. It still has to pass the House, and be introduced and passed in the Senate before it becomes effective.

The House vote is apparently in three days so NOW we need you to PHONE (too late for faxes) your House of Representative's office and ask to speak to the aide that handles internet issues and then ask them to support this bill. We need these calls in the next THREE days through Monday!

Please help! Call your representative and ask them to support House Bill 5469! NOW!!

Delay Sought for Net Broadcasters

WASHINGTON (AP) Sep 27, 11:37 AM (ET) - Small Internet radio stations should get an extra six months before being forced to pay
royalties to the musicians whose songs they are playing, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., introduced legislation late Thursday that would delay until April 20 fees set by the U.S. Copyright Office on webcasters this summer.
The copyright office decided in June that webcasters have to pay 70 cents per song heard by 1,000 listeners starting October 20.
While the recording industry wanted more, many webcasters say that the rate is too high and will put them out of business.

Traditional radio broadcasters are exempt from paying the new royalties, which would go to compensate artists and music labels for using their songs. Over-the-air radio stations use a rate based on a percentage of revenue to pay performers and record labels.

Internet radio - either simulcasts of traditional over-the-air radio or Internet-only stations streamed through the Internet to computers - is becoming more popular at offices and homes as people get high- speed computer connections. It is expected to move more into the mainstream as wireless devices proliferate, allowing listeners to tune in while walking or driving.

Default Why?

Why is this spam?
Is it a leap to assume that audio enthusiasts are interested in listening to music?
