So far, Live365 and AccuRadio.com have agreed to cease their music programming on June 26, save for brief audio public service announcements sprinkled throughout the day, according to a Wednesday report by Kurt Hanson of the Radio and Internet Newsletter,. So has the online presence of KCRW, the Southern California-based public radio station. Other public radio broadcasters and larger operators, such as Yahoo, RealNetworks' Rhapsody service and Pandora, may also sign on, Hanson said. A number of small commercial Webcasters are also on board with the idea, and all told, thousands are expected to participate, notes CNET.
The brouhaha is over fee hikes that the Internet radio community says could bankrupt its services, particularly those run by smaller operators. See our [url=http://www.macsimumnews.com/index.php/archive/battle_over_internet_radio_fees_goes_on]May 22 report[/url] for background on the controversy.
