This is important to everybody that listens to ANYthing on the internet. They want to increase the royalties on all music played on the internet, PER listener.

From the About page:
At the request of the Recording Industry Association of America, the CRB ignored the fact that Internet radio royalties were already double what satellite radio pays, and multiplied the royalties even further. The 2005 royalty rate was 7/100 of a penny per song streamed; the 2010 rate will be 19/100 of a penny per song streamed. And for small webcasters that were able to calculate royalties as a percentage of revenue in 2005 – that option was quashed by the CRB, so small webcasters’ royalties will grow exponentially!

We like our free radio (ask Joe how many listeners contribute), but the RIAA is trying to contro, or stifle, every outlet for their product monopoly.
We can't afford this. If you like to listen to music on the internet click on the link and sign the petition. I don't believe we would be affected, but you never know. The place that I like to listen to online music is Pandora, its excellent!
