The Day The Music Died: Internet Radio Goes Silent

In protest of the increase in royalty fees internet radio stations had a ‘day of silence’ yesterday. Instead of finding their regular music channels, many web radio listeners were told about the increase in fees and were asked to contact their Congressmen in support of the Internet Radio Equality Act, and they did. Servers were overloaded and Congressional switchboards were constantly busy.

WebProNews has a videocast covering the protest.
