The U.S. Copyright Office Friday sided with record companies and said broadcasters should pay separate performance royalties when streaming their programming over the Internet.
NAB vows to continue its fight against the practice and has a lawsuit pending in federal court.
"Broadcasters currently pay hundreds of millions of dollars annually to the licensing societies representing the authors, composers and publishers, and have never been required to pay additional fees to the record companies and artists," said NAB President and CEO Eddie Fritts.
