It’s come to this: a day of radio silence. Pandora, AccuRadio, and my own local WXPN among many others are going silent today to protest fee increases from the Copyright Royalty Board that will effectively put them out of business if something is not done before July 15th. We’ve covered this story multiple times in the past, and the mainstream media is finally picking up its cue with coverage today in The Washington Post, The Toronto Globe and Mail, and on Reuters.
What can you do to bring back Internet radio? Call your Congressional representatives, tell your friends, give money to the cause.

And shame on Last.FM for not participating. They should be mobilizing their userbase for themselves and for the community at large.
I was unaware of any protest. I listened to Yahoo LaunchCast all day on June 26. In what way did they participate?
