No Court Reprieve for Webcasters; Call Congress to Save Music Webcasters Now

The government-set royalty rates paid by music webcasters are set to dramatically rise on July 15, posing a imminent threat to stations of all stripes. A federal appeals court today declined to temporarily stay the new rates, but Congress could still step in with a last-second reprieve. The Internet Radio Equality Act would nullify the rate increase and add some much-needed, sensible changes to the rate-setting process. SaveNetRadio.org has more details about how you can take action to support this bill now.
