Lawmakers Introduce Internet Music Royalty Legislation

Internet radio stations are being discriminated against with higher royalty fees than other digital radio services. That may be about to change with the introduction of the Internet Radio Fairness Act. The legislation, backed by Pandora, was introduced in the House and the Senate on Friday.

"This bill puts Internet radio on an even plane with its competitors, and allows the music marketplace to evolve and to expand آ— which will ultimately benefit artists and the Internet economy."
