    Well it looks like its going to happen, after months of pleading and asking listeners to call their congressmen It appears that the bill that is going to destroy internet radio will go into effect as planned. Represent the people huh? Right.... :rolleyes:

    Edit:
    It seems there is still something we can do about it, savenetradio.org is advising people to call their representatives and urge them to push the Internet Radio Equality Act. It seems like this is the last chance...

    I don't get it, why is something being passed that curtails independent radio stations? we don't want net radio to turn into stuff provided by a few power corporations like say cable or satellite.

    looks like another reprieve as SoundExchange has stated to Congress that they will not collect on the new rates.
