RIAA = Real Idiot Asshole Assholes
Yes, that’s double asshole there folks. So we learned recently that RIAA (that includes the likes of Sony-BMG, Universal, Warner and EMI) have recently hiked rates for Web Broadcasting to the extreme. NPR have been hit pretty hard by this and will most certainly be leading the fight against these bastards. Also hit hard are our good mates over at Pandora who have been providing an exceptional service to millions of listeners.
While Pandora looks for a way to figure this out, this subject needs our attention. At the very least, head on over and sign a petition or for more, check out Save Our Internet Radio to learn more.
