Support Internet Radio - Relief for Small Business webcasters

There's a congressional vote tomorrow, Oct 1, to help webcasters (Internet radio broadcasters) remain in business while they are resolving their commercial disputes with record companies & the RIAA. H.R. 5469 - Six-month moratorium on royalties - Up for vote on October 1st.

If the bill is not enacted prior to October 20, webcasters will be forced to shut down - even though their case is still on appeal.

In other words, if the bill doesn't pass, the RIAA wins the war.
Read all about it here: Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel (CARP) News.

There's still time (well, one day) to shout out. The CARP News site spells out all the particulars.
