Vote On Delayng Webcasters Royalty Rates Cancelled
from the lobbyists--at-work dept
Last week we had an article about a bill in Congress that would webcasting fees that are scheduled to go into effect this month. Today, however, the sponsors of the bill cancelled the vote saying that webcasters and music industry were close to an agreement on their own to settle the problems. However, many people are saying that the vote was really cancelled due to heavy lobbying from the music industry and their friends, ensuring that the bill would not receive the necessary votes. In other words, the music industry is doing everything possible to kill off webcasting as fast as possible.
