Day of Silence

Save Internet Radio
Internet radio is in immediate danger. Devastatingly large increases in royalty rates take effect July 15: retroactive to Jan 1 2006. Many radio and music sites can’t afford the increases, so will be forced to shut down their music streams.Microphone graphic

Today is a national “Day of Silence” to protest these rates, and to encourage the millions of net radio listeners to take action and contact their Congressional representatives.

Webcasters across USA have special programming planned; some will broadcast complete silence.

The bipartisan Internet Radio Equality Act can save internet radio. Info at Savenetradio.org and Radio and Internet Newsletter.
