The Internet Radio Battle Heads For The Hill

radio.jpgIt’s been two days since the Internet radio day of silence, and today at 10 a.m. ET, the House of Representatives’ Small Business Committee will hold a hearing about the Copyright Royalty Board’s decision to raise royalty rates for Webcasters. RAIN has a breakdown of the witness list, which includes the general manager of WOXY on the anti-rate-hike side and the chairman of Tommy Boy Records opposing him. No word on whether or not this hearing will show up on any of the C-SPAN channels, but the committee does have a YouTube channel, so perhaps highlights will pop up as the day goes on.
