Internet Radio's "Day Of Silence" - Take Action Today!

Today most Internet radio sites have gone off the air in observance of a Day Of Silence. They are doing this to bring to everyone's attention a disastrous turn of events that threatens the existence of internet radio. We need your help!

Ignoring all rationality and responding only to the lobbying of the RIAA, an arbitration committee in Washington DC has drastically increased the licensing fees Internet radio sites must pay to stream songs and are retroactive for eighteen months! Left unchanged by Congress, every day will be like today as internet radio sites start shutting down and the music dies.

A bill called the "Internet Radio Equality Act" has already been introduced in both the Senate (S. 1353) and House of Representatives (H.R. 2060) to fix the problem and save Internet radio from obliteration.

I need you to call your Congressional representatives today and ask them to become co-sponsors of the bill. It will only take a few minutes. You can find your Congresspersons and their phone numbers by entering your zip code here.

Your opinion matters to your representatives - so please take just a minute to call.

As always, and now more than ever, thank you for your support.
