Radio Stations Appeal Webcasting Royalty Ruling
from the misinterpretation-of-the-law dept
A group of radio stations are appealing the decision that says they need to pay extra webcasting fees when they’re just streaming the contents of their regular broadcasts online. They claim that the courts misinterpreted the law, which was really intended for music downloading services – and not for radio re-broadcasts. Of course, the RIAA, which can’t seem to see the forest through the dollar signs, is likely to go on their usual ballistic short-sighted rant about how this is going to help more people steal music or something.
