That Reminds Me...

Audio Graphics did an extensive post on the SoundExchange/Internet radio fight. I've talked about it at length in this blog, but as one of the players in the drama, Ken Dardis brings some real insight to the issue. As he so succinctly puts it:
The whole issue from the webcasters' perspective is that they don't want to pay performance royalty rates which far exceed what satellite radio, cable, and online music services pay.
And that reminds me -- I haven't yet received a response from either my senators or representative who I wrote about Orphan Works act. I'll send them another e-mail and see what shakes over the weekend.

After all, isn't eternal vigilance the price of democracy?
