Radio b’casters lose Webcast ruling

Cyberbiz Brief

Radio broadcasters lost a round in court recently when they asked that royalty exclusions that apply to over-the-air broadcasting also apply to Webcasting.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled that broadcasters must pay royalties in line with a decision by the U.S. Copyright Office last year at a rate of .07¢ per song per listener.

The National Assn. of Broadcasters plans to continue to fight the ruling, however, saying, “NAB disagrees with the court opinion, which we believe serves to stifle efforts by hometown radio stations to better serve listeners.”
