After speaking with my lawyer last night after the LOC's ruling, I have found out that the webcasting industry as a whole may be able to file a class action lawsuit on the US Government. If this is true (after I do some researching), then StreamingSoundtracks.com may be one of the fore-runners of the largest Class Action Lawsuit this decade.

Let me know your thoughts.

I'm not really politically active, nor do I know a lot about law... but I'm all for it from what I do know. If I can find a way to help or something, I'm all for it. I think I'm the only resident graphic designer here. Going to go professional soon anyway, that is.

This is terrible news for webcasting and for private enterprise in the USA. The Library of Congress lowering of the CARP ruling is little more than throwing a bone to the independent webcasters who are in turn "getting boned" by the DMCA. We are the ones who have spent years building the Internet radio medium and now we are being told to get lost?

Before we all go bankrupt, it seems to me that a class action lawsuit by all independent webcasters against the RIAA and the 5 major labels is our only hope. I call on Live365 and other medium size webcasters to lead the way by initiating the class action lawsuit. We've respected the RIAA and given the corporate labels a chance to play fair. They've proven that all they care about is creating another FM radio monopoly on the Internet at our expense. This is not free enterprise in America -- this is corporate tyranny.

It's time to get nasty with a class action lawsuit.

Regardless of the lawsuit's final outcome, it will garner further press and attention to our goals and what is going on.
