Save net radio – progress report from Tim Westergren of Pandora

Hi, it’s Tim again,

I wanted to thank you again for your extraordinary support in the fight to save Internet radio and Pandora. Thanks to the overwhelming number of calls you made, letters you faxed, and emails you sent, the Internet Radio Equality Act is fast gaining momentum in the House of
Representatives (74 sponsors and growing). It’s nothing short of remarkable for this to happen in such a brief period of time – almost unprecedented.

Last Friday a Senate version of the bill was introduced by Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sam Brownback (R-KS): www.savenetradio.org/071510-wyden.pdf.
This is a promising development, but we need your help again. I know we’re asking a lot, but the stakes couldn’t be higher and the fight is not over.

Please call the offices of your Senators and ask them to co-sponsor the Internet Radio Equality Act, S. 1353.

Senator Harry Reid: (202) 224-3542

Senator John Ensign: (202) 224-6244

to keep up on our fight to save Internet radio. There are some powerful testimonials there from musicians who have found their audience through Internet radio.

We are deeply moved by your support. Thank you.

Tim Westergren

  1. I got cut off from Pandora today … I’m in Canada and they stopped serving servers in Canada due to copyright legislation. 🙁 waaanh … Pandora is a wonderul service and has introduced me to lots of new artists. 

  2. I know. I got cut off in Lux a few weeks ago. EMI’s announcement of selling DRM free music on iTunes and now this consumer revolution are leading the way in the shakedown. This is a historic period for music and we’ll be able to tell our grandkids that we were there!
