I don’t think that people should get something for nothing, unless the net value of said item is, in fact, nothing. However, this is ridiculous and the RIAA should be slapped for this.
Tomorrow, the majority of major internet radio stations will be going offline to protest a rate increase that goes in effect on July 1st, which is retroactive to January 2006. This rate increase will destroy these small, blossoming businesses before they even have the chance to get off the ground.
The reality of this is, the RIAA wants to control how you receive your music and if it doesn’t meet with their known methods of control, they will find a Senator who will legislate that method out of business for them.
Do the right thing: Save Net Radio
