Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - May 8, 2002

"You may have heard that some webcasters are participating today in a so-called 'Day of Silence.' This is their way of protesting their obligation to compensate artists and record companies for their music. While the purpose of this protest is misguided, a "day of silence" is a fitting theme. Everyone should understand what the world would sound like without the music that is often taken for granted. If those who make the music we all love are not fairly compensated for their work, that will be the result -- silence.

"Let's not forget that the music webcasters want essentially for free is the backbone of their entire business. Somehow these companies have found a way to pay fair market rates for everything else necessary for their business -- from bandwidth and computers to rent and furniture. Why should the most important element of their business -- the music -- be any different?

"Artists and record companies deserve fair compensation for their creations. They have waited patiently for more than three years to be compensated while webcasters have been building their businesses. Webcasters are not entitled to a free ride or subsidy. The time has come for webcasters to stop protesting and work cooperatively with artists and record labels to ensure success for all and provide fans with the great music they expect and deserve."
