Doc Searls links to a guy arguing that internet broadcasters should just use pod-safe music (and cut themselves off from the RIAA's madness). That madness is detailed here, in Doc's Linux Journal column:
In a move that recalls the Vogons' decision to destroy Earth to clear the way for a highway bypass through space (a thankfully fictional premise of Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), the judges comprising the Copyright Royalty Board have decided to destroy the Internet radio industry so the Recording Industry won't be inconvenienced by something it doesn't know, like or understand.
This whole thing is amazingly stupid. The recording industry clearly doesn't understand the internet; it doesn't stop at the waterline. This is going to go the same way the spammers went (and it wouldn't surprise me to see the same people involved): overseas, to low regulation areas. The music industry has two choices: they can charge the money they want (but won't ever collect), or they can charge a reasonable rate based on the changed market. Not having a close relationship with reality, they are trying the first path.
