Gamers Radio is Slowly Rising Out Of The Ashes

Wow, has it really been almost 5 years since I’ve posed to Gamers Radio? I’ve had plans to move from Joomla to WordPress for nearly 7 years, but I just seemed to let it slide. Having a bit of time, I worked through the import process and finally moved most everything over to WordPress. There is still a lot of cleanup to do on old stories, but I’m determined to get through it.

You may notice the theme is rather basic. I’m going to leave it that way for now. I used to spend days on end putting together new themes for the site with the help of Raze, but right now I just need to get back to the basics and find my grove. Speaking of Raze, the header you see was put together by him about 7 years ago. I bet he never thought I would use it. It’s still awesome. I wonder if he’s still out there somewhere.

Speaking of groove. I’ve been struggling what I should do with this site. It’s crazy how much the Internet, gaming and music have changed since I started this journey in 1997. It’s even crazier how much I’ve changed. I think it’s time the focus on the site caught up to those changes. Don’t worry though. We’re still going to be about Gaming  and Music, but with the shift from Computers to Mobile devices, we need to change our direction a bit.

I was dreading this moment because it was such a pain to do the migration and I thought I wouldn’t find any inspiration once I made the move. Man, was I wrong. I missed this place.

More to come…..

 

New Vent Server

We have a new 50-slot Ventrillo server to share among all members of the Cabal Gaming Cartel!

Internet Radio Day of Silence

Today is the Day of silence and both GR stations are off the air (as is all of Live365) to illustrate the impact of the new royalty rates on Internet Radio. In other words, it will disappear as we know it.

Please take the opportunity to call your Senators or Representative and let them know that you support the Internet Radio Equity Act (H.R. 2060 and S.1353). You can find out how to contact them here:

http://www.savenetradio.org/

Stations should resume programming around midnight tonight.

Thanks for your support!

The End Of Gamers Radio May Be Near

Live365 Joins Filing for Emergency Stay of New Royalty Rate Increases

Foster City, CA—Mark Lam, CEO of Live365 Inc. joined other Internet radio companies today to submit an affidavit in support of a motion for an emergency stay to halt a steep increase in sound recording royalty rates. On March 2nd, 2007 the U.S. Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) imposed new royalty rates that threaten to bankrupt Internet radio stations like Live365.

“Look, when ALL Internet radio companies, large and small, are fighting the CRB decision the result is obviously flawed. Live365 is one of the top 4 royalty payers to SoundExchange and I can tell you we’ve never made a profit. Now they want to increase music label profits by arbitrarily increasing rates by 44%, 84%, 136% to 150% over four years! They also increased rates on National Public Radio and college stations. I don’t see any consideration for the public interest in the CRB’s deliberations: it was flawed.

Make no mistake, we want to pay a fair royalty to artists. We have been paying songwriters for their copyright royalties for years and you don’t hear complaints about that. But the new rates are insanely high and will kill Internet radio.”

Background on Live365
Established in 1997, Live365 (www.live365.com) is the world’s largest Internet radio network that hosts nearly 10,000 stations and streams music to more than 4 million listeners a month. Its mission is to make it affordable and easy for individuals to start their own radio stations and share their love for music to listeners around the world. Live365 has gone to great lengths to provide a legal and equitable means to stream music to listeners while paying royalties for the right to do so.

Here are some very interesting quotes from the filing:

Page 5: Appellants have contacted both the Clerk's Office and opposing counsel advising them of this Motion. Appellants have sought the consent of Appellees CRB and SoundExchange, Inc. ("SoundExchange") to the relief requested by this Application. Neither Appellee has provided consent.

Page 7: The irreparable harm manifests itself in different ways for different Appellants, but one common thread runs throughout: absent a stay prior to the effective initial payment date of July 15, 2007, the decision will cause wide-scale shutdowns of Appellants' webcasting offerings.

Page 8: Absent a stay, Live365 will be forced to shut down on July 15, 2007. (As will GR1 and GR2)

Page 8: For four of the SCWs (Small Commercial Webcasters) that participated before the CRB, royalties will increase from 11% of revenues under the pre-existing rate structure to 300% of revenues in 2006, 306.5% of revenues in 2007, and 345% of revenues in 2008 – royalty increases of over 2,000%.

Page 9: Unless stayed, the Final Determination will cause NPR substantially to reduce its online radio offerings as of July 15, 2007.

Page 9: The Final Determination will lead to the loss of many diverse sources of music. It will have a devastating impact on independent artists, small stations, and audiences. Quite literally, the date on which the Final Determination becomes effective will be "the day the music dies" for online radio. A stay pending appeal thus is urgently needed.

Page 20: The rates imposed by the CRB could not possibly comply with the "willing-buyer willing-seller" standard of 5 114(f)(2)(B), because no "willing buyer" would ever agree to the ruinous royalty levels contained in the Final Determination.

Page 23: The statutory factors demonstrate that online radio should be encouraged, not punished with higher royalties.

Page 23: There is no doubt that the Final Determination will have an imminent, certain, and devastating impact on online radio.

Last Chance To Save Internet Radio

Dear Live365 Broadcasters,

On March 21st, I wrote you regarding the initial ruling by the Copyright Royalty
Board (CRB) announcing catastrophically high new royalty rates as
well as a $500/year minimum per station. Despite the outcry of nearly all
webcasters, the CRB denied the request for a rehearing and has proceeded
with their original ruling.

In response to these new and unfair fees, Representative Jay Inslee (D-WA)
introduced the Internet Radio Equality Act (HR 2060) on April 26th.

This bill will provide immediate relief from the
proposed new rates and can save thousands of Internet radio stations from going off
the air.

Live365 and the other members of the SaveNetRadio Coalition fully support this
proposal and are working diligently to see it turned into law. The
next step is to line up cosponsors for HR 2060, but time is running short.

We ask that you IMMEDIATELY:

CALL your Representative and ask them to cosponsor HR 2060 -- The Internet Radio
Equality Act. Click here to find your Representative's number:

NOTIFY -- YOUR LISTENERS, ARTISTS, and FRIENDS -- and have them call THEIR
Representatives with the same request to cosponsor HR 2060.

We thank you again for all of the great support so far. Let's keep the momentum
building into a crescendo that everyone can hear.


Sincerely,

Jason Stoddard
Director, Broadcasting
Live365.com

Ps. It looks like Live365 will be observing the "Day of Silence" on May 8th. More

Open Letter to Artists, Labels and Songwriters

It has always been Live365’s mission to support artists and pay our fair share of royalties. Since its inception in 1999, Live365 has always paid both composer royalties (to ASCAP, BMI and SESAC) and performance royalties (to SoundExchange). Over the last few years, we've paid millions to SoundExchange alone on behalf of our broadcasters and listeners.

It’s all about supporting artists who write and perform the songs we enjoy. This is a core mission behind Live365. Some of this support comes from promotion, airtime, so artists’ works can be heard. Some comes from cash in the form of ROYALTIES. Last year, Live365 paid SoundExchange, the collector of sound recording royalties, more than $1 million (for the performing musicians and singers) on behalf of our broadcasters and have continually paid royalties since day one of our service.

To take the administrative burden of tracking Live365 stations off SoundExchange and our broadcasters' back, we also created and provided for our stations an entire data management system that tracks which songs were heard, by how many persons, providing SoundExchange with a single, compiled report insuring thousands of Internet stations are law abiding webcasters that do report and pay royalties. And that’s just one type of royalties. Live365 and its broadcasters do the same reporting and paying for the song writers and composers through contracts with their royalty organizations, ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.

What we do not understand is why Internet radio is saddled with the highest rates. Satellite services, such as Sirius or XM, and cable TV music providers, such as Music Choice, pay nearly 50% less for the same royalties. AM & FM stations pay NO sound recording royalties at all. If all parties were putting in their share, if there was parity for all broadcasters, there would be no need to double, nearly triple the royalty rates for Internet radio as the government established Copyright Royalty Board has done.

Many small, non-profit and public service stations with little or no revenue will be stopped from broadcasting on the Internet under these new rates which will eliminate many of the music you can’t find on AM, FM, satellite, or cable radio. If these rates stay in place, we’d expect 80% of Live365 stations, specifically those in niche genres with unique content unavailable elsewhere, will have no choice but to shut down. Our 260 genres would probably be reduced to 10 and become homogenized as AM/FM radio. As an example, this year’s “pay for performance per listener” rate of $0.0011 may seem tiny, but one Internet radio station that broadcasts 15 songs an hour to even 500 listeners would pay SoundExchange $72,270 a year for sound recording royalties alone, not to mention their other costs for composition royalties, hosting, bandwidth, music library and their programming. Compare that to the current under $1,000 average price of broadcasting on Live365.

Internet radio, such as Live365, is the only source most people have for jazz, classical, folk and many other types of music in niche genres. Many of these genres are key elements of American culture, and Internet radio is one of our best resources for preserving them. Internet radio reaches the entire world and helps spread the exchange of cultures and goodwill to people everywhere.

 

Thank You,

Atomm Nihilo

Gamers Radio Battalion

What Is The Gamers Radio Battalion?

We are a group of Gaming nuts who enjoy playing various games, but don't spend every waking minute analyzing every single element of the game. Sure, we want to be good players, but we do have a life offline.

We enjoy playing custom maps and are always looking for new members to help test maps, or even build new maps. We also enjoy playing various games including the Battlefield franchise, Unreal Tournament and Counterstrike. We also plan on playing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Unreal Tournament 2007 and future Battlefield games.

Who Are The |GRB|?

 

To understand who we are, you need to know where we came from. The |GRB| was founded with the release of Battlefield 1942 in 2002 by Atomm and Racer as a way to enjoy the camaraderie and teamwork associated with playing the First Person Shooter. The original members came from Racers Ghost Recon clan and had a good understanding of what teamwork meant.

With this solid core, the |GRB| went on to host many gaming events for the sole purpose of extending the gameplay of BF42 as well as offering the community something more. The first Friday Night Fights, Custom Map Night was held at the end of 2002. Offering a handful of custom maps that had not seen rotation on game servers previously, the event was a success, even gaining support from Evil Homer of Planet Battlefield Fame.

Over the course of the next few years, |GRB| would host many custom map events for Battlefield 1942 and eventually Battlefield Vietnam, reviewing several hundred custom maps along the way. Eventually, our custom map events brought us several game players who enjoyed the challenge of making custom maps. These members would turn out over a dozen custom maps for BF42 and BFV with one of the custom maps even being picked up by a custom gaming league as an official map.

In addition to our love of supporting custom map makers, we have helped beta test battlefield mods including Battlegroup for BF42 and BFV and even the WWII conversion project bringing all of the original BF42 maps to the BFV engine. In fact, a sole member of this clan single handedly finished the WWII conversion project in a effort to make sure it was released back to the Battlefield community.

Along the way, we have also enjoyed playing Unreal Tournament 2004 including over a hundred custom maps for CTF and Bombing Run. Eventually, the interest in UT2004 died down, but we still pick up a game or two now and then.

Up next was Battlefield 2. This was a turning point for our community participation as the tools offered by DICE in support of Battlefield 2 were lacking, not to mention the game engine was too taxing on several members systems. With a strong love of custom maps, we found ourselves devoid of custom mappers for this new game. With little to no outlet to extend the BF2 game, we waited patiently for a decent mod to be released. Unfortunately, the mod tools again reared their ugly head as mods for BF2 have been few and far between. Longing for more than the BF2 engine could offer, we slowly stagnated as gameplay became routine bored.

This brings us to where we are today. We are at a turning point in our evolution as a clan and will soon start our fourth official game with the release of Quake Wars. We are hopeful that the community support will be strong for ETQW, even allowing us to offer those niche gaming events that bring continued life to an aging game.

On the horizon is Unreal Tournament 2007, Frontlines: Fuel of War and Team Fortress 2. Our ranks are starting to gain momentum again with the excitement that a new game offers. If ever there was a good time to join our group of motley fools, this would be it.

Quakecon 2007

It’s beginning to look a lot like…
QUAKECON 2007!

That’s right! It may be winter outside, but it’s time to start planning that summer vacation to the ultimate multiplayer gaming event and party – QuakeCon 2007. We’re locked and loaded for August 2-5, 2007 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX, and we’ve got more gaming, events, exhibits and fun planned than ever before.

This year’s BYOC Area will consume the entire Trinity Hall 1, with over 70,000 square feet of floor space and 2,700 player spots – over 1,000 more seats than 2006. We’ve also increased the exhibit area 5X to 25,000 square feet, enough to accommodate up to 50 exhibitors demonstrating their latest games and computer hardware. Of course, it wouldn’t be QuakeCon without our high-stakes pro gaming tournaments; and attendees can also look forward to the return and expansion of our enormously popular and one-of-a-kind “Quick Draw” tournaments, which pit randomly selected attendees against each other in high-pressure battles for serious cash. And in keeping with QuakeCon tradition, every day will be packed full of contests, conferences, announcements, and entertainment.

BYOC Registration:
Registration for the BYOC Area will kick off at 9:00pm EST on March 2, 2007 at www.quakecon.org, and if you’ve been under a rock for the last 12 years, the event continues to be FREE thanks to the support of the incredible volunteer QuakeCon Staff, id Software, and our yearly sponsors and exhibitors.

QuakeCon Room Reservations:
The Hilton Anatole is now taking room reservations for QuakeCon 2007 through their custom QuakeCon reservation link or through their toll-free reservations number, 1-800-HILTONS. To receive our specially negotiated room rate of $131 (single, double, triple, or quad occupancy), and our special daily self-park rate of $5 (regularly $15 per day), you must request the group rate for “QuakeCon 2007” or book through the link above when making your reservation. The Hotel requires a $50 non-refundable deposit on group reservations, which will be credited to your final room bill upon check-out.

Sponsorship:
Companies interested in receiving information on our totally new sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities should email sponsors@quakecon.org. We’ve restructured the participation options to be more inclusive and affordable than ever before, so don’t miss out.

More QuakeCon 2007 information, including airline and other travel discounts, will be available in early 2007 so stay tuned to www.quakecon.org. Now, mark your calendar, book your room, request the time off, and do whatever else it takes to join us – we’re already looking forward to it.

GR2 Playlist Update!

I updated the station today with 27 new songs and improved copies of three songs already up and playing.  If you look under "Featured Content" to the right side of the front page, you can see the play list in it's entirety.  Or you can click here .  I'll make an effort to keep it up-to-date.

 

Happy Holidays
