Dear James:

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the royalty fees for webcasters that were recommended by the Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel (CARP). I
appreciate hearing from you.

As you know, on February 20, 2002, CARP released its recommended royalty fees for webcasters. The rate for Internet transmissions and for retransmission of a performance in an AM/FM radio broadcast was
recommended to be set at $.14 per performance. On May 21, 2002, the Librarian of Congress issued an order rejecting the CARP recommendation, and on June 20, 2002 the Librarian of Congress set the rates at $.07 per performance. Rates for noncommercial broadcasters as well as the fee webcasters and broadcasters must pay for the making of ephemeral
recordings were decreased from the CARP recommendation.

When Congress passed DMCA, our intention was that artists and copyright holders be fairly paid for commercial uses of their work, while webcasters
though the Internet would be able to provide competitive programming of value to consumers. Congress intended the statutory license process to be
fair and efficient, so that the webcast industry could be free of legal uncertainty, grow quickly and pay creators increasing amounts as the industry developed.

As these rates go into effect for webcasters, please be assured that I will be watching this issue carefully. Thank you again for taking the time to express your views on this important subject. I hope you will
continue to communicate with me on matters of concern to you.

Seems to me that if they're going to wait until the rates are in effect, there won't be anything to watch closely anymore.

How can anyone in their right mind consider the rates as being balanced, for the artist and for as well as the webcasters? They are balanced alright, none of the above will profit from this because if there is no webcasting anymore, the artists as well as the webcasters will have 0 (ZERO) profit from it.

Apparently politics is the same all over the world, the politicians think the people are dumb and ignorant.

This pisses me off!
