This is bad
news for internet radio... It'll be interesting to see what happens on next
The Internet radio death watch continues. Late yesterday, a federal appeals
court denied an emergency stay petition from webcasters, refusing to delay the
arrival of massive royalty hikes that threaten to bring down online radio as
we know it. The new royalty rates - which could mean a 300 per cent payment
increase for large stations, 1200 per cent for smaller broadcasters - are due
to kick in this Sunday.
