As quoted from www.digitallyimported.com. Below you will see that BassDrive is
also participating in the day of silence today. Our streams will only broadcast the discussion of internet radio.
Your favorite radio stations are in danger!
Today BassDrive and Digitally Imported join the hundreds of webcasters around
the nation (and world) in the May Day of Silence to highlight
our concern over the upcoming U.S. Copyright Office ruling on
royalty rates that may shut down or bankrupt the vast majority
of Internet radio stations such as ours!
By crying "Mayday! Mayday!" we're hoping that listeners
will take the time to contact their representatives in Washington
and ask those representatives to express their concerns to the
Librarian of Congress, delivering the message: "The legislative
intent of a statutory royalty rate was supposed to be to ENCOURAGE
the growth and diversity of the industry, not to kill it."
For all information on this matter please visit www.SaveInternetRadio.org
If you can't live without your favorite stations, please take
the time to make a difference!
Please fax a letter of support to your Congress representative. You can do it online here.
