Internet Radio - Day of Silence Today Pandora went into a "Day of Silence" as a protest for the fact that "an arbitration committee in Washington DC" has decided to charge excessive amounts to Internet radio stations like Pandora making it virtually impossible to afford the licenses to play music on the net effectively putting businesses like Pandora out of business.

This is sad. I've signed the petition (as a european you have to be inventive to sign it) and tried to spread the word to as many people as I possibly can.

I think it would be very sad if internet radio like Pandora would disappear since for someone like me who doesn't like Britney Spears or Michael Jackson there really isn't many good alternative sources with fresh ideas for good music. All the CDs I've bought in the last year has been by being inspired by songs played on Pandora. If the RIAA manage to close down Pandora I'm going to stop buying CDs and stubbornly only download songs from pirate bittorrent sites. There you have it!

Try to participate if you care about evil corporate organisations damaging the arts.
