Mine say that they will "Keep my concerns in mind" if it comes to a full vote.  I love Politics.   Frown

Okay troops, it appears that internet radio has received a temporary reprieve as Congressionally-spurred negotiations continue between webcasters and recording industry rep SoundExchange.  Bottom line:  Radio Vietnam will not go silent on Sunday.  Grin The following is the latest breaking news.  However, this situation is very volatile  Frown and those interested should check in at the Wired Blog Network's Listening Post for constant updates:  http://blog.wired.com/music/save_net_radio/index.html

Small And Large Webcasters Face Different Risks

By Eliot Van Buskirk July 13, 2007 | 3:22:35 PM Categories: Save Net Radio
 
SoundExchange's executive director Jon Simson said yesterday, "For the [webcasters] who want to comply with the law and are in bona fide negotiations with us, we don't want those people to be intimidated. And we don't want them to stop streaming.  That's just so long as they're continuing to pay under the license they had."

There's been confusion in the webcasting community about what this means for webcasters that were not party to the CRB or congressional hearings (as in, not part of the "bona fide negotiations").

Here's the deal, according to SoundExchange.  Payments under the new rates are legally due  on Monday, but no lawsuits are going to be meted out on that day for webcasters who do not pay, as negotiations continue.  Fees that are not negotiated away will still be due retroactively -- plus interest.

Small webcasters who are in compliance with SoundExchange's reporting requirements could continue to pay the same fees that they currently do -- but only if small webcaster rates remain the same as they were under the Small Webcaster Settlement Act of 2002 (10 percent of gross revenue up to $250,000 or 12 percent of gross revenue above that amount).  This deal, which seems likely, would be good until 2010.

Large webcasters face a different challenge.  The good news for them is that minimum per-station fees are capped at $50,000, saving Pandora and other personalized radio services from paying out billion dollar fees.  However, for large webcasters, SoundExchange is not negotiating the royalty rates set by the CRB for each song played to each listener.

Ah yes, those were the days back during the big fight.  It is hard not to get nostalgic for the struggle.  The camaraderie on the barricades, making Molotov cocktails, singing patriotic songs, the feeling of everyone united together in the fight for victory.  Those were times when we all felt like we had purpose..........    LOL

Do I hear the faint strains of the Internationale?   . . . or in the vernacular of the 60s and our dear radio station, "Take it to the streets, maaaaannnnnn!"   Stoner
