Thanks to Representatives Jay Inslee from Washington state's 1st Congressional District (the fightin' 1st!!) and Donald Manzullo from Illinois' 16th (the fightin' 16th!!), Internet radio operators finally have at least a glimmer of hope as they face a potentially fatal day of reckoning next month on the 15th. Future Perfect Radio reports that Inslee, Manzullo and seven co-sponsors introduced the The Internet Radio Equality Act to the House of Representatives on Thursday in an attempt to save Internet radio from the devastating royalty fee increases from the arseholes at the RIAA.
Even if you've already signed their petition, SaveNetRadio.org now urges eveyone to call their direct Representative in the House in order to drum up support for the Bill so that it has a chance of actually passing. (no need to look for your phone book, just type in your zip code and SaveNetRadio will find the # of your local congressman)
