Save Internet Radio!

May 1, 2002

Today, Internet radio stations are observing a day of silence in order to save Internet radio. Why does internet radio need saving? Well, no one's making a lot of money off it. In fact, many streams are run from individual's computers or by small companies who don't earn enough money to pay the licesnsing fees that the RIAA has asked the Librarian of Congress to approve. As broadcast radio continues to consolidate leaving only programmed, generic broadcasts, Internet radio is where most of the interesting radio is happening, although there is the occassional exception.
