Mac, is that last link suppose to be different from http://www.savenetradio.org/
link. I signed the petition at this one and sent it off but all I got back from my congressman was a "We get lots of emails and I'll read yours when I get to it" reply. I may have to bring out the big water hose soon.

What would I do without you all!!

I had the wrong address, not sure how I managed that!

Thanks for mentioning this Roberto and thanks to everyone that has signed the petition!

Dear Friends,

Keep up the fight, because of your efforts the following message is being posted by the Save Net Radio Coalition!

The future of Internet radio is in immediate danger. Royalty rates for webcasters have been drastically increased by a recent ruling and are due to go into effect on May 15 (retroactive to Jan 1, 2006!). That is why Highlander Radio and CelticRadio.net has joined the Save Net Radio Coalition.

If the increased rates remain unchanged, the majority of webcasters will go bankrupt and silent on this date including Highlander Radio and CelticRadio.net.

Highlander Radio needs your help! H.R. 2060, The Internet Radio Equality Act was introduced by Representatives Jay Inslee (D-WA) and Donald Manzullo (R-IL ) to save the Internet radio industry. Please call your congressperson to ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 2060 by clicking below.

CALL YOUR CONGRESSPERSON NOW TO ASK THEM
TO CO-SPONSOR H.R. 2060, THE INTERNET RADIO EQUALITY ACT.


There is a bill just introduced in Congress that will save Internet radio from the devastating royalty fee increases that will put thousands of Internet webcasters out of business on May 15th. Please call your Representative in Congress as soon as possible and urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 2060, the Internet Radio Equality Act.

ACT NOW!


Let's take back our country from the big corporations that want to tell US how we should listen to music, what WE should buy and HOW we should listen to it.

The U.S.A. is for the PEOPLE, not for the CORPORATIONS that are trying to wrestle control of everything. A panel of 3 appointed Judges (backed by the RIAA) have determined what is best for Americans.

Well, I say that Americans know what is best for Americans and that these Judges should go back to their Country Clubs and eat their own cake (and leave us alone).

Let May 15th be the rallying call, not just for Internet Radio - but for all forms of digital media which is flourishing across the internet. From Podcasters, to Independent Musicians to webcasters - We believe in fair rates, legal use of music and the promotion of independent musicans.

Its in the hands of the people now. Either choose a digital future governed by the RIAA or choose a digital future governed by the PEOPLE, for the PEOPLE and by the PEOPLE.

Forward this message on to everyone that loves the U.S.A. and wants to see the people of the U.S. freed from the Greed of the RIAA corporations bent on suing children and grand-parents for copyright violations. Do it now and thanks so much for your support!

Thanks so much for your support!

All I can say to everyone, is if you ever wanted to make a difference please PLEASE call your congressperson and let them know to support this bill.

At this point, emails and letters will be too late. We need to CALL!!! If you visit the SAVE NET RADIO website they have links to your congressperson and also a brief script that you can read to your congressperson. But of course, tell them how you really feel.

WE ARE GOING TO SEND A BIG MESSAGE TO THE RIAA!!!!

Lets do it and over-ride those 3 Copyright Judges who think they can tell you how and where you can listen to the music you want to listen too!

Called this morning and was told that I would be notified as soon as the congressman takes a position on the legislation. Believe me, I will be following up!

I just did same, also, wrote to CRB, also wrote to RIAA, told them I have spent Thousands of $$$ over the years for "legal fees", but, if this passes, no more, told RIAA that i will not purchase their products, or anything that advertises for them. This is absolutely "police -state" type of legislation that has already been passed, if this H.R.2060 does not go, this will only be the start,(or the end), of "free" internet as we know it. Do not delay, or soon, all we will be able to hear is"top 40 hits", not to mention, struggling artists just getting started, where the 'net is their only medium to get their music out to us. So, please, let YOUR voice be heard, there is not much time left.Thanks.

I just had a quick read of the proposed legislation. There are good "talking points" in H.R. 2060 regarding diversity and foreign language internet programming, as well as impact of fees upon rural areas and communities. In establishing rates, the proposed bill makes a distinction between commercial and non-commercial internet broadcasters, and requires various reports including from public broadcasting. I invite those with a better legal, business or regulatory background to read the text and share with others your sense of why this bill is good. Offhand, to my eye, it seems well thought out and conscientious.

I'm going to direct everyone who is passionately following these developments to visit the Internet Radio Newsletter website. Here is the latest news on the Save Net Radio Campaign:

A large group of webcasters, musicians and independent record label execs will convene in Washington D.C. tomorrow for the "Hill walk" organized by the SaveNetRadio.org coalition.

The group has meetings scheduled with Representatives in Congress whom they will meet with to promote the passage of the Internet Radio Equality Act (H.R. 2060).

Also in today's issue, Kurt and Paul respond to SoundExchange's latest press release, which claims that the new bill aimed at saving Internet radio would actually only benefit "mega-corporate webcasters" who are trying to swindle artists out of royalties.

Read more about tomorrow's "Hill walk" in today's new issue of RAIN, available now at http://www.kurthanson.com.

More cause for alarm and yet another reason to support H.R.2060:

"RIAA's affiliate organization SoundExchange claims it has the right to collect royalties for any artist http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/4/24/141326/870, no matter if they have signed with an RIAA label or not. 'SoundExchange (the RIAA) considers any digital performance of a song as falling under their compulsory license. If any artist records a song, SoundExchange has the right to collect royalties for its performance on Internet radio. Artists can offer to download their music for free, but they cannot offer their songs to Internet radio for free "
