Internet Radio : Day of Silence

From WOXY.com – if their trials and tribulations have not been enough with funding and support – the next axe may be the final one, all across the board of internet radio stations.

The future of Internet radio is in immediate danger. Royalty rates for webcasters have been drastically increased by a recent ruling and are due to go into effect on July 15 (retroactive to Jan 1, 2006!).To protest these rates and encourage you to take action and contact your Congressional representatives, WOXY.com is taking part in the Day of Silence by silencing both our main channel and WOXY Vintage for today. Don’t fret, the rock returns at Midnight EDT this evening.Please call your Congressional Representatives today to ensure the future of Internet radio. Click this link for instructions how.
