Congress Weighs In On “Radio-Like Services”

RIAA’s congressional prostitutes are trying to push through the “Platform Equality and Remedies for Rights Holders in Music Act.” What will it do? Give RIAA more power to sue anyone and everyone instead of evolving to compete in the marketplace.

The law is designed so that RIAA can shake down anyone who uses “radio-like services.” This includes music via cable, Internet, and even portable satellite radio devices. Imagine recording something you paid for with a satellite radio subscription and find RIAA shaking you down for playing the music later.
