Chantilly, Va. – Deploying the very technology that gave birth to the industry it represents, The International Webcasting Association (IWA), in cooperation with TVWorldwide.com announced a joint effort to produce two webcasts on important copyright issues that may change the face of the webcast industry. In an effort to unite and inform its members and the webcasting industry at large, the IWA will dedicate the second in a series of on-line Worldwide Town Meetings of Webcasters to the implications of the Copyright Office recommendations. This will be webcast on May 9 from 1PM-4 PM EDT. This will be followed the next day with live coverage of the U.S. Copyright Office’s important roundtable discussion on the proposed guidelines for webcasters to give the required notice of copyrighted material they webcast and to maintain webcast records. The roundtable will be held May 10 from 9AM-5PM EDT. Both webcasts will originate from Washington D.C. and be freely available at www.webcasters.org and www.tvworldwide.com. Event sponsors include Streaming Magazine, the nationally syndicated “On-Line Tonight” radio show featuring David Lawrence and other sponsors currently lining up to support the webcasts.

Visitors to the live Worldwide Town Meeting of Webcasters will be able to post questions to the panel and participate by submitting questions and comments chat and e-mail, thus providing a fully interactive forum for those unable to attend or who are simply interested in learning more about the issues.

Roger Dean, Chairman of the IWA said, “We’re excited to be able to bring our industry together for these important events in a format that actually showcases the benefits from webcasting. We’ve again teamed with TVWorldwide.com to webcast the event because of their vast expertise in streaming successful interactive events via Internet TV.”

”This is a defining moment for our industry,” stated Susan Pickering, Executive Director of the IWA stated. “We’re demonstrating the potential of the very medium we work in every day as we create awareness of these issues. Its crucial to ensure our membership and all webcasters have access to the process taking place surrounding the copyright issues.”

“We’re pleased to work with the IWA on this historical first in streaming video,” stated Dave Gardy, Chairman and CEO of TVWorldwide.com. “We’re getting a huge response to these events nationally and the U.S. Copyright Office has been very responsive in working with us to facilitate coverage of the roundtable. We look forward to once again working with the IWA as they practice what they preach in utilizing webcasts to serve their membership.”

The 1998 Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) established that webcasters must pay "performance rights" fees to record labels for the music they play and instructed the Copyright Office to set the appropriate rate, which turned the matter over to a Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel (CARP) to propose what those rates should be. Industry observers have pointed out that the CARP’s recommended rates are significantly more than 100% of most webcasters gross revenues. The Librarian of Congress has until May 21, 2002 to decide whether to accept, reject or modify the CARP’s findings.

”If they accept the CARP panel’s recommendation, many observers believe that the decision will effectively kill Internet Radio as an industry, as the decision could bankrupt all but the three or four largest webcasters,” commented Pickering.

The event will be compressed and archived for viewing at www.webcasters.org and www.tvworldwide.com. Participants should have the free Real Player installed and should log on 15 minutes prior to each event. Questions can be directed to 703-961-9250, ext 223 before and during the events.

As a leading streaming video applications service provider, TVWorldwide.com is developing a network of video channels that is an affiliation of community-based Internet television stations, each underwritten by a strategic partner, "aimcastingsm" to targeted B2B and special interest demographic audiences worldwide. TVWorldwide.com works with strategic partners to develop the latest in live and archived state-of-the art video streaming content applications. TVWorldwide.com was recently named one of the streaming video industry’s “Hottest Streaming Companies” by Streaming Magazine, www.streamingmagazine.com.

The International Webcasting Association (IWA) is a worldwide non-profit trade organization dedicated to the growth and development of the art, technology and commerce of webcasting and streaming media over the Internet and other networks. The IWA, headquartered in Washington, DC ( www.webcasters.org ), represents members throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Canada and Australia. The IWA works to keep members informed, connected, and better prepared for the changes that are an integral part of the technology.

Woo-Hoo! Streaming Soundtracks had the 1st e-mail question of the session answered! It was sent in by me -

"Will the decisions that are made for streaming audio also effect streaming video? How will this decision effect educational institutes who wish to broadcast medical surgeries and such?"

What about foreign artist? If you stream audio that was produced out of America do you still have to pay royalties to CARP?

If CARP wants Internet broadcasters to pay royalties for streaming audio over the internet. That stream is being played to the public, right? So how does what Internet broadcasters differ from what nightclubs, private mobile djs, and other individuals making money by playing audio?

My name is James Jennison, and I am one of the administrators for StreamingSoundtracks.com.



The question that I have is this:



As it is, we are already having to be licensed by BMI, SESAC, and ASCAP. If the Librarian of Congress approves the CARP ruling, will be have to pay both the normal licensing fees, in addition to what we would have to pay to the RIAA?

Ok, if this is true, then why do traditional radio stations only have to pay half what we would have to pay?

From a StreamingSoundtracks.com Listener:



Do you think the industry could agree on an open end licence fee - much the way some companies deal with software licenses?

There is also the issue of the retroactive fee. Is it right to be essentially putting us in a double whammy? Per-Click/Per-Listener, and for the past four years? Don’t you think that is a little steep?

I thought the copyright law works in a way that:

If you purchase the copyright material, you as the "owner" can do whatever you
please to? Due to a fee being taken from the sale of the material? As an example of, if I bought a CD and decided to play it a picnic for others to
enjoy, I have to pay royalties?

What justifies a person violating the DMCA? Amount of hours played? Number of people listening?
