How quickly will SE send out the bills for the 2006 back due money? Or are we supposed to automatically know what to do?

Your mileage may vary!

SoundExchange won't bill you. You need to file your payments on time and in full in accordance with the license agreement.

The industry's last hope of a reprieve rests with Congress, which is considering legislation that would not only block the rate hike, but reduce royalties below their current level.

A rollback bill has acquired five sponsors in the Senate, including Massachusetts Democratic Senator John Kerry. A similar House measure has 130 sponsors. But no one expects Congress to act before the new rates take effect on Sunday.
Kinda out of the loop with this aspect. Can anyone shed any light on it?

Is there a page to request listener statistics for a station as required under the SoundExchange reporting requirements? Or any good application for searching the local server logs and compiling the information? This would seem to be needed under any proposed solution, as the situation stands.

www.radiotoolbox.com has tools under downloads or tools that can be used to parse your logs. They are free too.

A spokesman for SoundExchange, the music-industry organization that collects the Internet royalties, praised the court ruling, but added that music companies are open to compromise on the new royalty rates. Richard Ades said that SoundExchange is negotiating with small and non commercial broadcasters on a reduced royalty plan.

"SoundExchange is bending over backwards to deal with the unintended consequences of this issue," Ades said.

SoundExchange has offered reduced rates for small independent broadcasters, and for non commercial broadcasters. It's also offered to modify a requirement for an annual minimum royalty fee of $500.
I've heard nothing of this either. Had it been a real and advantageous offer, I'm sure IBS would have grabbed it for their member stations. I was on their website yesterday looking for news, and there was nothing except the same thing that is on savenetradio.

Your mileage may vary!

Just thought I would make the link show up for everyone.

No surprise that this is happening, a few of you UK guys were wise enough to see this on the horizon and helped us out with the day of silence we had here is the US, I guess we will have to try and give our support to you now. This really is a global issue, so hopefully there will be better participation this time around.

To you guys in the UK, I say good luck and keep us posted on the details!

I thank you for the link to the story. We were proud to have been part of the day of silance and hope that our friends in the USA survive this,now the passing of the internet equality act would certainly would give us some leverage. However at this stage I have not seen anything on the web like a UK save net radio Hardly surprising as ths story appeared on Thursday when we had floods over half the country. Transport virtually shut down and a Bi election. it nearly got by us.
There is a petition on the government site at petitions.pm.gov.uk/
internet-radio/

I urge all small webcasters from the UK to sign this.

Well, I think that Savenetradio needs an update to cover the issues coming up in the UK! As I said, it's a global issue that started in the US and will continue throughout the rest of the world. And I suggest savenetradio because it is already up and running and the url is also a good description of what the site is about.

If not maybe someone like Stream Solutions will host a savenetradio.co.uk or something like that.

Your mileage may vary!

You are absolutely right this will go global I beleave that the major record companies want to control all music heard. Commercial radio wants rid of compatition in the UK broadcast stations get their internet licence free with the copyright for over the air. I have informed SNR today. but please feel free to contact them.

Here is a list of congressional leaders who are not cosponsor HR 2060…if you have time please find the leader closes to you and ask them why they are not sponsoring the bill….

A global license is coming soon for small webcasters. Check out this forum post.

I take it almost all of us are "small webcasters" and not medium or big webcasters. The small webcasters are the ones who really need to legitamcy here. The bigger guys can afford whatever is thrown at them.

The bigger guys have bargining power with the record labels, so they can cut decent deals directly. all us little guys are just hanging in the breeze when it comes to direct deals.

Your mileage may vary!

If only they represented the intent and needs of the smaller webcasters like us then it would be peachy. Don't worry soon there will be a global license that will enable the small guys like us to stream guilt and worry free to pretty much everywhere in the world.

Well, they get my vote since the internet is a worlwide "commodity". It really makes no sense to limit your stream to only certain regions of the World (like the UK did).

Your mileage may vary!

You don't have enough posts yet, and or time yet. They did this to cut down on the porn site spamming.

Have you tried putting thr url tags at the beginning and ending of your links? Might work, might not.

Your mileage may vary!

Liquid Compass Announces New Online Radio RIAA Royalty Reporting Tool
RIAA Reporter to Simplify 2008’s Per Performance Reporting Requirements

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Liquid Compass, a leading content delivery network (CDN) that provides streaming and digital media services to the radio industry, has developed RIAA Reporter — a royalty reporting tool that automates the new per performance RIAA royalty reporting requirements that go into effect in 2008.
Which is another tool that is overdue.

Your mileage may vary!

You need to post more often so that you can directly link things like this.

I personally don't care about Yahoo, but what does AOL imply for Shoutcast, and, maybe Winamp?

nothing really. The AOL sponsored stations will drop out. The yp may or may not remain up and running. SHOUTcast will most likely continue on. Winamp is just a media player, so I see nothing happening to winamp long term.

what are you kidding....Shoutcast will close up shop....Winamp will go along with it. Unless you can find someone who is willing to buy it, and gamble on litigation.

As a whole, we really need to contact our congressional leaders and get them to pass the bill...

look around, this is being dragged out to 2009, a year after Clinton is in office...

3/4 of her staff is X-RIAA and 1/4 of staff at Dem Convention is X-RIAA

you really need to pay attention...

Icecast is open sourced, so we may just have to switch.

Darwin Streaming Server is open sourced.

And if they are going to abandon Shoutcast, I have a feeling that it will go open source too. (if only to put a thorn in the RIAA's side)

Your mileage may vary!

The webcasting rates are a bill applied to the streamer. Winamp, nor SHOUTcast are the streamer. YOU stream hosts are.

So no, neither Winamp or SHOUTcast will go away.

However, AOL hosts a lot of content, so this may dry up.

Additionally, do not assume that AOL hosted streams are licensed by AOL, a lot pay their fees independantly with AOL playing the part of a pure carrier.

Short answer: Everything will continue. Just that they will make less money as legit streams drop out and illegal streams fill up the void.

That's one of the points that they should key in... If it was easier to pay, and cheaper to pay, then they might have more people actually paying. And if it was easier and cheaper I might actually feel sorry for them (RIAA). They seem to delight in making things so difficult that you have to hire a full time person just to deal with the paperwork.

It is fairly easy to pay via services like web radio world or loudcity.

The damn fees are making me keel over in pain. $500 minimum plus royalities. Shit.

But as irony would have it, SoundExchange doesn't seem to be particularly concerned about the future or fate of small commercial Webcasters since they still comprise a very tiny portion of the royalty pie, even under the new statutory rate scheme. It will take a lot more political maneuvering to gain a foothold in the ongoing royalty battle without relying on the "big players."
