BuzzFlash,
 
PC World knows what's going on with Internet radio, and they have a copy of the bill available. We will probably be fighting off people forever trying to ruin the Internet because of what it is. I like to see mags like this one, which probably has a very large audience, bring awareness to this bill.

On Thursday a bill that could save Internet radio was submitted to Congress. The bill, Internet Radio Equality Act, would stop a new royalty scheme that Internet broadcasters say will shut them down because it will cost them too much money.

The ones who couldn't join in
The others refusing to sing
The ones who are losing their voice
The ones who've forgotten the tune.

Excerpt "God Bless America," Harold Pinter, January 2003
