INTERNET RADIO FAIRNESS ACT
Fans of free Internet radio sites are being asked by leaders like Pandora's Tim Westergren to support a new bipartisan bill. The Internet Radio Fairness Act, as it's been dubbed, hopes to help change some unfair practices. According to Pandora (and others) the music industry is charging them hefty royalty fees that amount to 50% of their revenues while online radio sites like Sirius XM only pay 10%. Listeners and supporters can learn more about the act and how to help it pass by visiting Pandora's FAQ page here.
