Internet radio’s execution has been postponed, briefly.

The U.S. Copyright Royalty Board has given internet radio stations 2 more months to live, before crushingly high royalty rates are inflicted upon them. Bill H.R. 2060 (which, if passed, will nullify the CRB ruling) is currently sitting in two different committees. I don’t know what the odds are of getting it out of committee and signed into law before July 15th are, but if you ever listen to music on the internet, you need to contact your representative and tell him or her how important this is. If you happen to know your representative is on one of these committees (Judiciary or Energy and Commerce), then speaking up right now is very important.
