    “For example, a performance right for FM and AM radio is long overdue. The fact that a multi-billion dollar broadcasting industry that derives its value from music gets a special interest carve-out from paying artists and labels continues to be indefensible.”

    It’s about effin time. I think the NAB (among others) will fight this tooth and nail, though. Cue up “Money” by Pink Floyd.

    Oh they will, and I think it’s about time too.

    Seems to me a very simple dynamic. Advance the public interest, and perhaps an exemption makes sense.

    Fuck the public interest? Great. Pay with the rest of ’em.
