Save Internet Radio!

Well these money-grubbin' corporate fucks are at it again ...

"The Copyright Royalty Board in Washington, DC has more than tripled the royalty rates for webcasters and left unchanged they will kill Internet radio. These exorbitant rates go into effect on May 15 (retroactive to Jan 1, 2006!). Without Congressional action the majority of webcasters will go bankrupt and silent on this date."

Everyone needs to sign the petition here.

I usually don't have to get on my soapbox too often, but this shit is out of hand. These record company douchebags continue to fuck the artists & the listeners. They ARE NOT raising royalties for the musicians. That money goes directly into the record companies pockets. A lot of people don't realize that artists don't get shit from selling records. All of their money comes from touring & merchandise. So please take a moment from your day and sign the petition.
