Day of Silence

More of an announcement than any news.
Tomorrow, June 26th, many internet radio broadcasters will be protesting the Copyright Ruling Board by holding a Day of Silence. will be joining this protest by suspending our services.

On with the message (if you haven't already heard):

The future of Internet radio is in immediate danger. Royalty rates for webcasters have been drastically increased by a recent ruling and are due to go into effect on July 15 (retroactive to Jan 1, 2006!). To protest these rates and encourage you to take action and contact your Congressional representatives, we are taking part in the Day of Silence, by silencing our programming for today. We ask that you excuse the interruption of our normal programming, and ask that you take action to help ensure this silence is not permanent.
Please call your Congressional Representatives today.

Thank you.
