NAB and CEA reiterated their opposition to audio flag legislation to the House and Senate leadership.
Legislation being promoted at the end of the 109th Congress would jeopardize the HD Radio rollout, they said.
“Preserving the rollout of HD Radio is of critical importance to broadcasters, manufacturers and consumers, and we remain opposed to any mandated, legislative approach on the audio flag,” wrote NAB President/CEO David Rehr and CEA President/CEO Gary Shapiro.
Broadcasters and manufacturers are committed to finding a voluntary solution to combat piracy and protect content, they said.
