Proposed Bill Aims to Save Music Webcasters

The recent Copyright Royalty Board's webcasting ruling provoked an immediate backlash from webcasters and listeners, who feared that the new rate hike would crush online music radio stations. Now a new bill in Congress would reverse the ruling and change how the Board sets the royalty rates.

News.com and the Radio and Internet Newsletter have more on the bill, and SaveNetRadio.org has set up an easy way for anyone to contact Congress about the bill.
