Net Radio Day of Silence

Net Radio Day of SilenceA bunch of Net Radio stations shut down their internet radio services today in protest of the huge royalty rate hike happening on July 15th, which will basically obliterate much of radio.  Stations included:

  • Pandora
  • Real Network's Rhapsody
  • Yahoo! Music
  • Live365A
  • WAMU (Washington)
  • KCRW (Santa Monica)

They're appealing to listeners to go to to help the fight.  Meanwhile, the Internet Radio Equality Act was introduced in both houses to try to fix the situation.

We'll see how it all plays out.  I'll really miss Pandora if it disapears...*sniff*...
