Saw this on the Dead Kennedys page on Facebook, & thought some of you might be interested:
Help Save Independent Musicians from Greedy Corporations
Pandora has emailed his customers with misleading information and has
not given musicians equal time on his site.
1. reduces payment to musicians by 85%.
2. strips musicians of right to collectively bargain.
3. doesn't allow the copyright royalty judges to consider whether a
kind of digital radio might replace sales.

Tell Congress: Don't Slash Music Creators' Pay
There are already 45% fewer independent musicians now than they were
in 2002 (US Bureau of Labor Statistics)
2011 - http://www.bls.gov/iag/tgs/iag711.htm
2002 - http://www.bls.gov/oes/2003/may/oes272042.htm (covers most of 2002)
Internet businessmen delivering music should not make more than the
people creating music.

I don't know much about Pandora, but I'm not at all surprised at Clear Channel being one of the devils in the story. This is fucked up.
