    Cool

    I'm sorry nut I must say all this is happening due to the lack of Internet Stations pulling together as one large organization such as NAB and IAB. It seems everyone wants to complain about it but nobody will group and work together. This has been preached for 3 years by Wes at DJC Media. Maybe it's time for all of us to group together for the greater good?

    PM me and I will make sure i send you some information in the near future. Our Media Group has been discussing the organization of digital broadcasters to approach record labels directly.

    Where do we sign?

    I've been in talks with some close relationships we have with older Artists.. I won't name names, but important Artists... they have the understanding that they appreciate the small payments they receive as their music gets older and less relevant... we've been asked if we would continue supporting them, and unfortunately, I think that would change.

    Our Indie non PRO Artists to Mainstream Artists ratio is going to increase, therefore, less plays for PRO oriented Artists... Only the new Artists like Taylor Swift and the like justify the new rates and changes.

    Regardless of what any individual artists may say, if they are a signatory of any record label agreement that is prospered under the RIAA umbrella - you are bound by law to pay whatever rate that is mandated by RIAA.

    RIAA see's no difference between new or old music, money is money. The incredibly sad part about RIAA - for all the money that they generate - very little goes to the actual artist. The bulk of the money is used for political lobbying efforts and "education" - not to mention the bloated salaries of the RIAA executives.

    Also, unless you have a direct agreement with an artist, or use creative commons - public domain music - by law - you are bound to submit royalty payment information to RIAA. They cleverly covered that loop hole.

    Most people assume that the use of unsigned artists are not covered by RIAA royalty agreements. This is wrong.

    I choose to look at the positives, as we grow in the fight for our self-preservation. For stations like mine, this would be a good time to focus less on the music and more on shows. Bring out some new, talented faces. Who knows, maybe we'll end up moving to a 24/7 talk format. All while fighting to keep ourselves in business, and save up money to afford the new royalty rates.

    I think you're unfamiliar with CyberFM, but that's ok obviously. Yes we create direct, private, binding contracts with Indie Artists.

    Cyber-FM will cease playing mainstream artists and support only the artists we have a direct relationship with. I'm glad that SoundExchange see's that for what it's worth. We carry a 50/50 ratio of Licensed vs Indie... I have NO problem moving that to 100%

    "We believe the rates set by the CRB do not reflect a market price for music and will erode the value of music in our economy," a company rep said in a statement. "We will review the decision closely and consider all of our options." --SoundExchange

    I got my e-mail from Marvin today. Good news/Bad news, I guess. Bad news: it's now about 40 a month, but that's also the good news, I was fully expecting to pay north of 50 a month. We still have decisions to make, though.
