On March 2nd, the Copyright Board, under advisement from the RIAA, increased royalty rates for internet radio stations to nearly 100% of small-broadcasters’ revenue. Traditionally, these rates were as low as 1-10%. Several small broadcasters have created a formal petition, complaint, and Congress-writing site at http://www.savenetradio.org.
