"SoundExchange offered a potential reprieve from the royalty
hikes, but that turned out to be a red herring to sneak DRM onto
web radio. In the end, SoundExchange was able to initiate a massive
(and retroactive) royalty hike on Internet radio stations, imposing
per-user fees for each song. Adding insult to injury, the royalties
on Internet radio will double for big stations by 2010, to an
estimated 2.91 cents per hour per listener—far higher than
the 1.6 cents that satellite stations would pay."
