Day of Silence

Save Net Radio
Thousands of Internet radio stations will observe a partial or complete day of silence today to bring attention to proposed huge royalty rate increases that could mean the end of net radio. The rates go into effect on July 15 and are retroactive to Jan 1, 2006. Oh yeah, that’s certainly fair…

Launchcast, Yahoo, Pandora, Live365, and KRCW are among those participating.

Kurt Hanson and SaveNetRadio have more.

This is one of those focused-issue campaigns that is having a demonstrable effect on Congress, who, due to the pressure, will be holding more hearings about it. Call your Congress members now.
