Performance Royalty passes House Judiciary Committee

Black Radio on it's Death Bed!!! Some say Hispanic and Christian Radio as well

The outcome and the 21-9 vote weren't a surprise - though there was an unexpectedly spirited debate between Committee Chairman John Conyers, who's pushing H.R. 848, and California Rep. Maxine Waters, who is sharply opposed. There were last-minute tweaks to the "Performance Rights Act", including a break for stations billing less than $5 million a year. The NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) and the Free Radio Alliance continue to rally opposition for the floor fight that's coming to the full House. The NAB has about 200 signatures of the 218 that it needs to block passage.
