Submission + - Pandora Access to be Blocked from Canada

PoprocksCk writes: "Pandora, the popular streaming Internet Radio service, will no longer be available to Canadians starting May 16th, due to copyright issues. They state, in an email that was sent to all Canadian listeners, "We began blocking access from almost all countries outside the U.S. last week and had originally hoped to maintain access to Canada. However, it has become clear in the last week that we just haven't been able to make enough progress to continue streaming."

The underlying issue is that in the U.S. there is a federal statute that provides this license for all the music streamed on Pandora, but there is no equivalent license outside the U.S.

Soon-to-be-former Canadian Pandora listeners may want to check out the Pandora blog for updates and for more information as it comes."
