Internet Radio Bills Supported by College Broadcasters

While with CIS, Fellow Elizabeth Rader (now with Akin Gump) did a lot of excellent work for college broadcasters facing prohibitively high fees and complex paper work for internet radio stations. Now, U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sam Brownback (R-KS) are trying to help too, by introducing the "Internet Radio Equality Act of 2007". Elizabeth's former client, CBI supports the legislation, and maybe you will too. This blurb is from their press release:

This important legislation largely parallels the "Internet Radio Equality Act", H.R. 2060, a House Bill, which is intended to save many commercial webcasters from bankruptcy and provide relief to non-profits. The Senate
version offers important distinctions for Educational Webcasters at high school and colleges across the nation, which will prevent a great many from being forced to shut down their stations and withdraw this educational opportunity for students.
