Both parties in fierce fight over online radio royalty rates are appealling the Copyright Office's proposed royalty rate for webcasters. RIAA says that the proposed rate is too low and, unsurprisingly, webcasters say the opposite.
Copyright Office proposed a royalty rate that would set the fee at $1.40 per thousand listeners for Internet-only stations and at $0.70 for radio stations who send their radio programming over the web as well as regular airwaves. The Librarian of Congress is due to rule on the appeals and set the rates by 20th of May.
