Hi, it's Tim from Pandora,

I'm writing today to ask for your help.  The survival of Pandora and all of Internet radio is in jeopardy because of a recent decision by the Copyright Royalty Board in Washington, DC to almost triple the licensing fees for Internet radio sites like Pandora.  The new royalty rates are irrationally high, more than four times what satellite radio pays, and broadcast radio doesn't pay these at all.  Left unchanged, these new royalties will kill every Internet radio site, including Pandora.

In response to these new and unfair fees, we have formed the SaveNetRadio Coalition, a group that includes listeners, artists, labels and webcasters.  I hope that you will consider joining us. 

Please sign our petition urging your Congressional representative to act to save Internet radio: http://capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/issues/alert/?alertid=9631541 

Please feel free to forward this link/email to your friends - the more petitioners we can get, the better.  

Understand that we are fully supportive of paying royalties to the artists whose music we play, and have done so since our inception.  As a former touring musician myself, I'm no stranger to the challenges facing working musicians.  The issue we have with the recent ruling is that it puts the cost of streaming far out of the range of ANY webcaster's business potential. 

I hope you'll take just a few minutes to sign our petition - it WILL make a difference. As a young industry, we do not have the lobbying power of the RIAA. You, our listeners, are by far our biggest and most influential allies.

As always, and now more than ever, thank you for your support.

 
-Tim Westergren

CONGRESS THREATENS INTERNET PRIVACY =================================== According to an article in cnet[1], there is bi-partisan support for severe changes to the data retention laws in the United States. These proposals may be voted on this week. Currently, the US is one of the few countries with good laws regarding data retention: a internet provider may be required to turn over data to authorities, but they are not required to collect any data in the first place. Under a new proposal[2] from Rep. Diana DeGetteick[3] (D-CO), any Internet service that "enables users to access content" must permanently retain records that would permit police to identify each user. The records could not be discarded until at least one year after the user's account was closed. If enacted into law, this might make it impossible for riseup.net to operate in the United States. While it might sound like a good idea to flee the Empire sooner than later, we have invested heavily in building our infrastructure in the US. Also, there are not many places on earth which are better, legally speaking. We will keep you, our loyal users, up to date on any new developments regarding this proposed law.

Tribeca Radio Is Here

www.TribecaRadio.net



Now the raw/live food, vegetarian, and alternative health community has

a radio station with a large block of programming geared to your health and

wellness needs.



With the consolidation of the media into the hands of a few giant

corporations, the voice of real alternative health information on radio

has been virtually silenced throughout the country. Tribeca Radio's

progressive programming is truly independent radio as it was meant to

be. You can hear Tribecaradio.net over the internet on your computer,

anywhere in the world.

Tune into Rhio's show, Hooked on Raw, next week when she has a very honest and straightforward conversation with Donna Perrone, organizer of New York's Accent on Wellness Group.
