National Day of Silence: SaveNetRadio.org

Help SaveNetRadio
I’m not overly addicted to Internet based radio that plays music (although I’ve mentioned Pandora here), I’m concerned that regulation requiring webcasters pay much higher royalties based on the number of listeners they have might make it through congress. I’m a bit fuzzy on the details, but suspect that most U.S. based Internet radio companies playing music could just move their servers offshore? Nevertheless, the change would treat broadcasters who are able to monitor their feeds over the Internet differently than satellite and ‘free’ over the air radio.


To draw attention to this change, most Internet radio broadcasters will be participating in a National Day of Silence (PDF) on June 26th next week. The goal is that listeners support online Internet radio by contacting their representative in Washington D.C. to SaveNetRadio. (see www.savenetradio.org)
