copyright arbitration royalty panel rejected

Many internet radio stations faced the greatest threat to their continued existence today, and won. The Library of Congress, and the US Copyright Office decided not to impose royalty rates recommended by the Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel (CARP). New rates will probably come in June. Let's hope that they aren't as high as the ones proposed by CARP, so that many fledgling internet radio stations can have the chance to find and build their audiences.
