Noisebox Internet Radio - Internet Radio of the Future?

Delicious satire, or chilling reality? While I think the former is that intent, I wouldn't be surprised to see it become the latter.

NOISEBOX INTERNET RADIO: "Whoever pays the most, gets played the most.

We will charge, for each track streamed to a listener, whatever is the CRB-established royalty rate (with all those extra bonus payments for “ephemeral” copies), plus calculated royalties owed to those other performance rights organization, plus the technical cost-per-stream, plus a nifty markup for our time and energy. The VCs love the business model. What scale. As costs go up, revenues automatically go up. Pure capitalist happy and joy."
