    This is one of many internet-related issues that have consequences in the general marketplace. The vast majority of music genres and artists have no play time on commercial radio and will never make it if no one can hear their songs.

    This is another example of Big Music trying to kill it’s competition and kill our ability to taste everything that the arts have to offer.

    net radio cannot afford such high royalty fees. if we want a wide variety of good radio, and not a bland clearchannel selection, fees must be kept low since most internet radio stations could not afford the CRB’s demands. i just love internet radio and would be sad to see it go.

    Considering the crap the labels and “new” artists are offering, boredom and lack of talent ought to be reason enough to make sure this legislation passes. Until the RIAA realizes that internet radio listeners are looking for music that either is never played or the past “oldies” that had not only talent writing and performing, but also the demand that is there to re-release these albums on to CD’s for the public to buy outright. Start to offer what the public wants then maybe the’ll see their profits rise a bit. Then again, they also need to quit screwing artists out their fair share of the royalties and lying about their decreasing bottom line. RIAA tactics of late against those who were trading songs has recently come under fire by the courts since they are acting like militia’s without any legal documents to allow them to just walk in and bust someone and their equipment. Boycotting the labels ought to be threatened. I think we can live with out Britney and the rest of the “Paris Hilton” drug and lesbian experimentation cartel.
