Our federal government is at it again. They have the power to decide how much in Royalties should be paid when a station plays a song over their internet broadcast feed.  They've set up a Copyright  Arbitration Royalty Panel...CARP for short, and so far they think that a station should pay for every listener who listens to even a clip of EVERY song.  And pay a lot.  It'll be the death of Internet simulcasting of radio stations.  But it's NOT to late, we can respond.  Visit here, get a hold of your politico's, tell 'em your feelings! Save Internet Radio!

The End of the Internet

The Internet has no beginning and no end, it just IS. Or so they say. Why, then, does this website exist, and just what exactly will happen if you click on the big red button presented herein? Will the Internet truly be turned off? Try it, if you dare.

Or Just the Beginning

But there is a way out! If you do turn off the Internet, quickly go to this site, click the big green button, and turn it back on again. Of course, if the Internet is "off," how can you possibly navigate to this site in order to turn it back on again? This paradox is one of the true mysteries of life, and perhaps better left unexplored after all.
