CARP Decision Draws Sharp DiMA Reaction

CARP Decision Draws Sharp DiMA Reaction

The Digital Media Association reacted quickly to the Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel’s ruling on the rates that broadcasters and Webcasters will pay to stream music online. The DiMA stated that it was “extremely disappointed” in the CARP’s proposed rates.
“A lower rate would more accurately reflect the marketplace for music performance rights and the uncertain business environment of the Webcast industry,” stated Jonathan Potter, executive director of DiMA.
DiMA had offered to pay 15 cents per listener, per hour, to the labels and artists.
CARP has ruled that commercial Webcasters will pay copyright holders 7 cents per performance for simultaneous Internet transmission of terrestrial AM or FM broadcasts and 14 cents per performance of all other transmissions.
