    the RIAA bastards think that internet radio should pay an exorbitant extra charge per song than regular radio stations!

    freakin *******s why should internet radio pay more!!!!

    secondly the bil will make internet radio stations liable for all the songs played previous to the bill!! WTF I THOUGHT THAT WAS ILLEGAL!! YOU CANT BE HELD LIABLE FOR A CRIME(or legislation for that matter) BEFORE IT WAS A FREAKIN CRIME!!!!

    the S.O.B.s, those same *******s are pushing the DMCA and the SSSCA and the other CCTB??? whatever bill...

    it is illegal to punish people for a crime they committed before it was a crime. it's called an ex post facto law.

    anyone else have a more ... "balanced" ... opinion?
