Net Radio Setback

So the RIAA and friends failed us once again. Apparently the final numbers for the rate hike got put through and its looking ugly. It looks like the rates are regressive for at least 60 days. The full story is here if you want to check it out. There is a bill named HR 2060, or the Internet Radio Equality Act that will attempt to equalize the rates between internet radio and sattelite radio (who only pay 5-7% royalties btw).
