From the story: "The SoundExchange executive [Jon Simson, executive director] promised — in front of Congress — that SoundExchange will not enforce the new royalty rates. Webcasters will stay online, as new rates are hammered out." There is still more work to do — get caught up, call your representatives to let them know you support net radio, and stay tuned — literally and figuratively — for more info."
"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity
is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.
