Representatives Jay Inslee, D-Wash., George Nethercutt, R-Wash., and Rick Boucher, D-Va., introduced the Internet Radio Fairness Act, a bill that sponsors say aims to provide a reprieve from bankruptcy for small Internet radio companies and correct the royalty arbitration process that imposed a high cost on the nascent Internet radio industry.
"With this bill, Reps. Inslee, Nethercutt and Boucher have once again demonstrated their appreciation of the promise of Internet technology and the benefits to consumers and recording artists that will result from a vibrant Internet radio industry," said Jonathan Potter, Executive Director of the Digital Media Association. "We are particularly encouraged by the bill's broad bipartisan support."
