New bill would save small Webcasters
A trio of federal lawmakers introduced a bill Friday that would eliminate
potentially steep royalty payments for small Internet radio stations, many
of which have said the fees would force them to close.
Dubbed "The Internet Radio Fairness Act," the bill would exempt from
royalties any business that makes less than $6 million in annual revenue, a
group that would include the vast majority of online radio stations
unaffiliated with a larger Internet or broadcasting company.
