Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - April 23, 2002

In the absence of legitimate entertainment options such as online radio, "pirate services will flourish and deny artists the dues that we're all fighting for," says Zack Zalon of California's Radio Free Virgin. "California lawmakers must support the independence, diversity and creativity that online radio represents.

His comments came after executives from seven California-based Net radio companies asked the California Congressional delegation to support a fair royalty regime for Internet radio.

"Representatives Lofgren, Honda, Lantos and Eshoo have taken a stand for webcasters today," said Val Starr of California's Choice Radio, "and more importantly they are supporting music-loving consumers in California who want to access diverse music and culture on the Internet.

"Several members of Congress from California are on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees in Washington. Hopefully, Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Howard Berman, who are senior members of those Committees, will feel our local industry's pain and recognize that the demise of small webcasters is bad for the Internet, bad for consumers and bad for recording artists."

Bill Goldsmith, the owner of popular California adult rock station RadioParadise.com, says, "The proposed fees would definitely put us out of business. If that happens, everyone loses: our listeners, the artists we play, and the record labels themselves. We'd see two years of hard work and sacrifice go right down the drain."

He warns against believing press releases from the record industry which, "try to portray the fees as being affordable." To the contrary, says Goldsmith, "not one webcaster - large or small - can cover these fees with their present levels of income."

David Landis of Ultimate-80s says, "Webcasters want to pay royalties to recording artists. But if super-high rates cause us to shut down, there will be no music, no royalties paid, and no money going to California recording artists."
