This week it's from Bryan Grundon at Cabin Fever:

CRB Delays, Congress Acts!

Good news for independent internet radio, the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB)has delayed royalty collection, pushing back the May 15th date forroyalty rates to take effect, to July 15th. This delay will allowbroadcasters and advocates for independent internet radio to appeal thenew royalty rate change with the CRB. In addition, two bills have beenintroduced.

In the House (H. R. 2060),introduced by Representative Inslee (D-WA) and Representative Manzullo(R-IL) and the Senate companion “Internet Radio Equality Act”,introduced by Senator Brownback (R-KA) and Senator Wyden (D-OR), toroll back the CRB decision. Currently, H. R. 2060 is in committee andhas 81 co-sponsors. Check and seeif your Representative has signed on to sponsor this bill. Both ofthese bills have garnered strong support on both sides of the aisle,demonstrating the importance of this issue and the effects it will haveon millions of internet listeners and broadcasters.

The window of opportunity is closing, so please contact your Congresspersons and ask them to sponsor their respective bills. You can visit Save Net Radio for more information.

I picked this one because I haven't done a thing with the Internet Radio stuff, and I've been meaning to look into it.
