writes "As reported this morning in The Wall Street Journal, the RIAA is now pushing Congress to hike royalty rates for Internet Radio. Tim Westergreen, co-founder of Pandora.com, claims that this action will shut down Pandora, along with many other internet radio stations.

One interesting point is that normal radio doesn't have to pay anything like this rate, they only pay the songwriters royalties, according to the article."
