Favorable Internet Radio Legislation Offing:

Serious progress is being made in the effort to save Internet Radio. And all while big media still seems to ignore the issue.
This just in
:
WASHINGTON, May 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Legislation introduced by Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sam Brownback (R-KA) today would save Internet radio from a recent royalty hike that threatens to bankrupt the industry. The Internet Radio Equality Act would vacate a Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) decision to increase fees webcasters pay to play music online by a devastating 300 to 1200 percent. Companion legislation (H.R. 2060) introduced in the House of Representatives on April 26th, by Congressman Jay Inslee (D-WA) and Don Manzullo (R-IL), has already garnered the support of more than 60 cosponsors.

In other news, the CRB has postponed imposing the new fee structure until July 15.

Please write your Senators/Representives in support of this, and visit Save Net Radio.
