    • On January 17, 2008, by Brammimonde - 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.

    • On January 30, 2008, by melissamusic - 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.
