Internet Radio is going to die

This comes in from Pandora via Jen;

Yesterday a federal court denied a plea to delay the massive increase in rates webcasters must pay the record labels. This means that, absent immediate Congressional action, the new ruinous royalty rates will be going into effect on Monday threatening the future of all internet radio.

Please contact your congressperson and senator. What the hell are the democrats doing? This is ridiculous.

UPDATE: Saved! Reprieve on Royalty increase

good work everybody ;)
