the RIAA is demanding that royalty rates be raised 300-1200% for internet radio stations. Not only that, but they are demanding that this be a RETROACTIVE increase to Jan 1 2006. Basically it will bankrupt 99% of internet radio.

The proposed rate increases are FOUR TIMES higher than what satellite radio pays, and AM/FM radio pays nothing.

Just go to this site. It can send a fax directly to both of your senators and your local congressmen. Takes about a minute, so please send something to your representives!

Actually that does sound like a pretty bad deal, I listen to a couple of internet radio shows... Unfortuantely I don't live in the US, so I can't contact senators etc. As long as I can still hear the draft mind you, I'm not too fussed!
