Yahoo wins U.S. court ruling over webcasting fees


A federal appeals court in New York ruled that a Yahoo Inc Internet radio service is not required to pay fees to copyright holders of songs it plays, a defeat for Sony Corp's BMG Music.

I hope like hell this sets a precedence that the online broadcasting community can use to create a more equitable compensation plan.
