If you tried tuning into Pandora, Yahoo! or even MTV today to listen to some web radio and were confused and possibly ticked off by the silence then you’ve obviously been living under a rock. In protest of the $1 Billion royalty rates that are due to hit web radio broadcasters on July 15 today was officially deemed a ‘day of silence’ in the US. Every web radio outfit in the SaveNetRadio coalition is silent today except last.fm. Fight the man, one day we’ll win!
