Victory for US net stations
Internet radio groups in America have gained a small victory this weekend with the announcement that the House of Representatives has approved a new bill.
The bill allows them to negotiate a lower royalty rate with the entertainment industry, something which has been closing stations across the states.
Originally, the American National Association of Broadcasters were against the bill, but that opposition has been dropped and it is believed that the Senate will likely approve the bill without problems.
Lower rates could be worked out as early as next month.
