Net radio operators lose a round | | CNET


Net radio operators lose a round CNET "In a potential blow to Internet radio services, a federal copyright panel on Monday largely upheld a contentious decision that would elevate royalty fees Webcasters must pay to record labels. "

I'm not sure when the Copyright Royalty Board and the RIAA will realize this, but after spending years trying to encourage legal and royalty paying music services, they are very close to succesfully killing most of them.

When users can no longer get free, ad-supported, music guess where they are going to turn?! Free "gray" services that don't generate a dime for the labels or their artists.... now they just get a bigger piece of the incredible shrinking pie.
