A recent decision by the Copyright Royalty Board in Washington, DC to nearly triple the licensing fees for Internet radio sites is irrationally high and will hurt music sites like Pandora. The new royalty rates are more than 4X what satellite radio pays and broadcast radio does not pay these. These new royalties will kill Internet radio.
In response to these new and unfair fees, Pandora formed the SaveNetRadio Coalition, a group that includes listeners, artists, labels and webcasters.
If you want to help you can sign a petition urging your Congressional representative to act to save Internet radio.
