this is pretty important to "export" music to the world
royalty increase only brings multi-loss, and we (Americans) can only listen webcast from overseas, not US
it is also not good for record industry
we need to learn from Chinese Proverb
Greediness leads to Proverty (in Chinese, Greediness and Poverty looks alike in shape)

Ah that's good news people! smile.gif
It would have been a great loss even for us non-americans, because there are so many great internet radios in america. Highlander radio for example.

Yes, it is not over until its over and SoundExchange might try to pull something that is up their sleeve.

Some updates I have received is that this is only for Webcasters that were part of the Copyright Royalty hearings. We will have to wait today and see what comes of this, so please everyone keep calling your congress person.

Make sure to express that while the bigs boys like Live365, Yahoo, AOL have the power to negotiate with SoundExchange, the little single owned webcaster - which there are thousands - does not have that ability.

Still, since we use Live365 to broadcast we can continue after July 15th. Will monitor this situation closely!

Yes, but where does Sen. Corker of Tennessee stand on this issue???


July 11, 2007



Dear Sir:

Thank you for taking the time to contact my office with your concerns about S. 1353, the Internet Radio Equality Act of 2007. Your input is important to me, and I appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts.

As you know, decisions regarding music royalty rates are determined by three judges appointed to the Copyright Royalty Board. S. 1353 would nullify the determinations of the Copyright Royalty Judges with respect to webcasting. Currently S. 1353 is being reviewed in the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Should this bill come before the full Senate, I will certainly take your concerns into consideration.

Thank you again for your letter. I hope you will continue to share your thoughts with me over the next six years.

Sincerely,

Bob Corker

United States Senator

This is really wonderful news , and an answer to many prayers!!!

My brother and both sisters have been joining me, hounding all our reps and senators about this - that's Ohio, Virginia, and Massachusetts. I've been making a nuisance of myself on other forums reminding everyone about the impending silence of internet radio, and now I can happily show that we can all still have an effect on things that seem too large to change!

Thank you Paul and Killian for all that you have done, and continue to do!!!

Hi everyone, I just want to say it would be a real shame for this online radio to be shut down. I've always had trouble finding new celtic groups, and this is a place I can really find the great celtic music I'm looking for. It's a great thing that I would hate for us to lose. Best of luck in saving the station and thank you for everything you've been.

Got an excellent response from the office of Rep. Olver (Western MA). He is a co-sponser. Bill still in committee (unfortunately not one he is on). Fully supports the Bill. Sen. Kerry supports the bill as per a casual response from his office and Sen. Kennedy is still thinking about it. Keep calling. Senators who are "still thinking about it" need to hear that their constituants want them to support it. Phone calls work MUCH better than e-mails.

WOOOO! Not out of the woods yet, but at least there's some light at the end of the tunnel.

Contacted Rep. Gallegly a while ago and got a form letter back. Hey, at least it was a response, eh? Time to ring up Senators Boxer and Feinstein...

I wrote to my senators and representative not that it will do much good. I've written them many times in the past. They seem to be anti-family, pro-gays, anti-religion, pro drug addicts, alcoholics, illegals, etc. They seem to be against everything good and uplifting that doesn't support their agenda. All I know to do is pray for them that somehow their hearts will be softened and they can see the good that is in this world and fight for it. I pray that we can keep our station and family here and the rule makers will hear our plies and see the good that is wrought here.

The powers that are pushing this should realize that listening to Celtic Radio has sold me a LOT of Celdic CD's and tapes. If I like something I try to add it to my music collection.

I had to leave work as soon as I got there this morning because I broke down over this. Man what a roller coaster ride! I am definitely glad to hear that there is hope that the damage won't already be done by the time proper laws can be on the books! I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on this mess!

I have been hoping that God would intervene to save us. This is promising. Let's keep the fire hot!
