I just called the offices of both senators, Latham and Loebsack, asking them all to support the bill. The woman in Loebsack's office sounded like she'd been hearing about the resolution all day, and the people in the senators' offices told me outright that they'd been getting lots of calls about it all day long. I hope this thing goes through- I don't like not having internet radio...
That's encouraging -- I'm glad it's become enough of a hot button issue for people to badger our politicians about this. Don't mess with the silent majority!
Best way to fight this is to never ever ever buy a CD again! I have not bought one in 5 years, and I will not buy another for the rest of my life, or at least until the RIAA is out of power.
Record companies are the scum of the earth. They waste their money oin stupid things and think the CD will survive. Get a life, RIAA, CDs are history. The more CDs I tried, the moire I realized that they are blatant ripoffs on pushing crap music. Stick with the singles. They tried to kill the singles. I think most people are listening to sports or talk radio now anyway.
RIAA, You are less respected than Congress!

Let my fred's Four Horsemen ride.
Plus, couldn't you capture streaming audio digitally and have a "good" copy of a song? You can't do that with your radio; or not to the quality you could from a stream.
Mmmmm... not always the case. Some internet radio streams really aren't that great of quality.. plus, most modern-day mp3 players that can listen to the radio, can also record it directly, too! So if you have a good signal to radio, you could totally record stuff if you wanted.
Same as if you could record a tv show on a cassette tape.... oh crap..... I guess I shouldn't have said anything... they might have to destroy television....
Plus, isn't free radio supposed to be getting better with this whole "HD Radio" thing? Uh oh... I guess that could spell trouble.... pfft.
Same here...I've caved in and bought a couple of DVD concerts though...
That's the thing, though. From what I know (due to limited research), artist's money comes from concerts, NOT from CD's. Yes, after an incredible amount of CD's, it adds up, but it adds up WAY more for the record companies. As far as I know, concerts are whatever the musicians want to make of it. But the CD's, that's where the record company comes in and snags a big share of the money.
