Webcasting Day of Silence: June 26, 2007
Jun 19, 2007 - While the protests against the webcasting royalties continues, webcasters are calling for a webcasting day of silence to demonstrate the potential effect of a royalty rate increase. The event is a repeat of a May 1, 2002 day of silence that was a response to a Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel (CARP) ruling. After the 2002 day of silence, the royalty rates were reduced for the period between 1998 and 2005.
On July 15, the Internet royalty rates for the previous 17 months are due to be paid to Sound Exchange. If left unchanged, the royalty rates will likely force many webcasters to cease operation because of the exorbitant costs.
The specific day of silence date was selected by members of savenetradio.org.
