I really resent the FCC trying to get its grubby little filthy paws into something that they had nothing to do with , or have no control over ! However they are I am sure going to find some way to take it over , like Nazi's !
Very sad & offensive in the highest form for us independent broadcasters who struggle along everyday doing what we love to do, and trying to do it legally without the corporate abuse dished out on a daily basis by greedy uncaring money mongers like the FCC. Lets face it , thats all they are interested in internet radio for , because they know it is the future ! Its a money maker ! So why let a little guy like me finally make a few bucks , right ? No way ! Take it from them ! Corporate Pigs !
We recently lost LoudCity.com a big licensing company for independent broadcasters which now leaves the only blanket licensing company left in the USA as streamlicensing.com. If they go , what will be the future for independent broadcasters ?
I feel this is such a tragic destruction of our constitutional rights and all that these wall street pigs care about is the money !
90% of small independent broadcasters could care less about the money or making it ! They broadcast because it is what they love to do ! And stations like mine , try to offer people a safe haven to go , away from all the typical chatroom , facebook crap , a place where people 40 and above can go and experience an enjoying place on the web where drama , bullying , harassment , obnoxious behavior isnt tolerated. Just good music , a good environment , and good people. And we are doing it right , paying our legal fees to Streamlicensing.com so the artist's get their royalties. What will happen to us ? We'll be pushed aside ? Told you cant do that anymore by corporate thugs ??? You call this fair ?
Here is gonna come the FCC and take that away from us ??? Thousands of independent broadcasters. Try to move in on us little guys ??? Take all that away so that they can take all the money and profits for themselves just like any other Mafia thug ! You think independent broadcasters are gonna just lie down and say " ohhhhh okay , I'll stop , you go ahead and take away all I have built for the last 7 years" !!!!!!
Well if they start to pull this crap , you can be sure your going to see a rejuvenation of Pirate Radio's all over the USA ! From every corner of every state ! Then how does that help the artist ???
I'm not saying I would do that , what Im saying is that there are many that will !! I personally know independent broadcasters that are getting pretty pissed off about the corporate Thug movements going on in internet radio.
It is just wrong for FCC to try to move in on an area where they were not invited , they have no rights , they didnt create it , and frankly , lets call a spade a spade , they are not just not WANTED !
Just thought I would express my opinion as a independent broadcaster knee deep in the middle of this area that government is trying to take as their own but have no rights to , as usual ! This is the kind of crap that happens in North Korea !
It isnt supposed to happen to Americans trying to get a little area of enjoyment from something they love to do and are gladly paying royalty licensing fee's to do it !
