Legislation forces radio stations to pay for music

Bloomberg reports:  “Radio station owners wouldhave to pay new fees to play music on the air under legislation approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee over opposition from broadcasters.”

“The measure, approved in a voice vote, would establish a royalty to be split between recording artists and labels. Satellite and Internet radio already pay such fees. Similar legislation passed the House Judiciary Committee in May.”
