Webcasters v. RIAA

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on July 10, 2003

Webcaster Alliance, Inc. “announced its’ concerns about anticompetitive conduct in the market for Internet radio, which were made in a letter to the Recording Industry Association of America. The Alliance notified the RIAA of its’ intention to initiate legal proceedings unless the RIAA takes concrete steps to address anticompetitive conditions in the market that threaten to eliminate small commercial webcasters.” As of this afternoon, there has been no response on the RIAA site to this announcement.
