Help save internet radio!

Internet radio is about to die.  A copy write board recently upped the royalties due from Internet radio stations to ASCAP by 300-1200% this will absolutely kill Internet radio as we know it.  There seems, however, to be a silver lining. 

Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) and Rep. Don Manzullo (R-IL) have headed the "Internet Radio Equality Act," which aims to stop the controversial March 2 decision which puts royalty of a .08 cent per song per listener, retroactively from 2006 to 2010 on internet radio.

Write, call, chat, or smoke-signal your congress man/woman.  Let them know that you support internet radio and that you would appreciate it if they did as well.  We might live through this after all.
