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

According to the University of South Florida (USF) publication The Oracle, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) have announced filing "John Doe" lawsuits against over 400 students at schools nation-wide who are accused of illegally downloading or sharing copyrighted materials using university networks and IP addresses.
The "John Doe" lawsuit is filed in an effort to obtain personal information about owners of the IP addresses from the service provider in order to file a personal lawsuit against the individual, after first attempting to reach a monetary settlement agreement. USF, like most schools, considers student information personal, but will assist the RIAA by providing names of those IP address holders to avoid any association with possible infractions of the law.
This February, the RIAA sent 400 pre-litigation letters to students at 13 universities, giving students the chance to settle with the RIAA within 20 days or face legal action. Reports indicate 119 students of those 400 have settled. Says Executive Vice President and General Counsel for the RIAA Steven Marks:
We have no choice but to take the problem of campus music theft seriously. Our ability to invest in new bands and new music is seriously threatened by online theft – a problem that remains particularly acute on college campuses. We are now giving students the opportunity to settle the claims against them during a pre-litigation period. Yet students who do not take advantage of this new process should understand that lawsuits are sure to follow.
