Webcasting Bill Introduced in Congress

A bill has been introduced into Congress that is intended to nullify the CRB rate decision for webcasters and set an interim rate through 2010 and perhaps 2011. The Internet Radio Equality Act has the potential to aid Educational (college and High School) Stations in the future and to some limited extent right away. The bill has much potential, but in the short term it also has the potential to raise the minimum fees for stations that were already paying $500 per year to $750 per year, which would be a higher minimum fee paid than by any other webcaster. That and other portions of the bill need to be changed. A full analysis will be forthcoming along with some suggested actions.
