Webcasting copyright licensing rules rejected!

Wow, this is an interesting turn. The Librarian of Congressrejected the findings of the CARP arbitration panel.

The Librarian of Congress now has until June 20, 2002 to issue his final recommendation. This should be thought of as a victory, because the CARP pricing scheme would have effectively killed Internet Radio. However, things are still up in the air, because this is only a rejection of CARP's report, and does not detail the new pricing scheme that the Librarian will accept.
