March 2007: Boycott The Fucking RIAA!

U.S. Copyright Royalty Board Rejects Webcasters, Embraces SoundExchange

On Friday, which is generally accepted in public relations circles as the best day of the week to release controversial news, the United States Copyright Royalty Board (image to the right) announced new royalty rates for webcasts, effective from 2006 to 2010.

The board ignored the arguments of the International Webcasting Association and other webcasters, and apparently simply endorsed the proposal of the RIAA-associated SoundExchange royalty organization, which represents the major and some indie labels.

Emphasis added by me.

The bastards are killing Internet streaming radio.

Isn’t it time to rip their balls off and stuff them down their fat fucking pinstriped throats?

I say Yes!
