Save The Tunes


And Now, A Public Service Announcement.

Please go to www.savenetradio.org and sign the petition.

I got this message from Zippychik the other day and felt that it should be posted (even though it's posted on Zippy's site too):

On March 2, 2007, The Copyright Royalty Board approved
royalty rates that will bury any small webcaster, and
create a heavy burden even for big broadcasters like
Yahoo, AOL Music and Pandora. How high will these
rates be? Around 100% of a small webcasters revenue,
give or take a few points, in most cases.

How did this happen? The RIAA told the CRB thats what
they wanted, and the CRB just gave it to them.

We need to keep these independent voices on the
internet.


The RadioGnome at RadioHideBound.com (see link on the right) is one of these people. My day depends on the internet radio people. I listen to Hidebound at work and at home. I have been turned on (he does turn me on) to many new groups (most of which aren't even new) through this medium and losing this would just be another reason to strap on the vest of explosives.

Please support this cause.
