KCRW Observes Internet radio Day Of Silence
Published June 21, 2007

KCRW 89.9 FM/Santa Monica and KCRW.com will join with fellow webcasters for a Day of Silence, Tuesday June 26th. The station will shut down regular programming on all three of its webstreams as a protest against the new high music royalties for Internet radio, established by the Copyright Royalty Board in March.

KCRW will produce a one-hour program (D-Day for Webcasters) featuring Pandora, Live365, Yahoo, AccuRadio, SomaFM, indie webcaster Bagel Radio and public radio station WAMU/Washington, DC among others. They will join host Ruth Seymour, KCRW’s General Manager, to describe the effects that the new rates will have on their ability to stream and to serve audiences online.

D-Day for Webcasters will be webcast all day Tuesday, June 26th on KCRW.com. It will also be broadcast on KCRW’s airwaves on Tuesday, June 26th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm PDT.

Webcasters are supporting the Internet Radio Equality Act, which has garnered bipartisan support in the House as well as the Senate. In addition, they have filed appeals and a request for a stay with the US District Court in Washington, DC.

However, if none of these tactics succeed, webcasters will be required to send checks to Sound Exchange, the collection agency for the record companies and the artists, on July 15. Rates are retroactive to 2006.
