thanks mark for sharing this scarey bit of news:
 
Is it me or does this have the whiff of Clear Channel about it?
its well known the Mays family (owners of Clear Channel) are tight with Bush.
 
This is insane and will end (legal) internet radio if not overturned.  
 
What's really crazy is that this obscure federal agency is charging the 
equivalent of full statutory rate (music publishing & writer's share) as if EVERY 
listener BOUGHT a copy of the record!!!
 
This defies logic to the extent that it could only come to pass in the 
Bush-Cheney environ.
 
With this current administration....it just gets curioser and curioser.
