Sensing that people aren't thrilled with the new webcasting rates that were put in place, the recording industry today tried to offer something of a compromise for small webcasters, though the solution still has plenty of problems. Basically, this only fixes a very small part of the problem and will still make life difficult for plenty of webcasters (not to mention it only lasts for few years before we have to go through the whole asinine process again). However, the recording industry is probably hoping that this "compromise" is enough to scare off politicians who are looking to smack down the rates.
