URGENT URGENT URGENT
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED FOR THURSDAY, JULY 12TH
Time and options are running out for Internet Radio. Late yesterday,
the U.S. Court of Appeals DENIED the emergency stay sought on
behalf of webcasters, millions of listeners and the artists
and music they support.
UNLESS CONGRESS ACTS BY JULY 15th, it is the end of the road
for Internet radio.
We are appealing to the millions of Internet radio listeners
out there, the webcasters they support and the artists and labels
we treasure to rise up and make your voices heard before this
vibrant medium is silenced.
This situation is grave, but that makes the message all the
simpler and most serious. CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES
RIGHT AWAY and urge them to support the "Internet Radio
Equality Act." If they've already co-sponsored, thank them
and tell them to fight to bring it to the floor for an immediate
vote. If the line is busy, call back. Call until you know your
voice has been heard. Your voices are what have gotten us this
far -- Congress has listened. Now, they are our only hope.
We are outmatched by lobbying power and money but we are NOT
outmatched by facts and passion and the power of our voices.
