Spin.com's Marc Hogan reports: A bill introduced in Congress in September that would cut the royalty rates that Internet radio providers must pay to artists has led to some unusual bedfellows. RIHANNA, KATY PERRY, BRIAN WILSON, STEVIE NICKS, NAS, T.I., BLONDIE, BILLY JOEL, and more than 100 other artists have signed an open letter opposing the so-called Internet Radio Fairness Act. They say the legislation would unnecessarily slash payments depended on by musicians. “Pandora’s principal asset is the music,” says the letter, whose signers also include ROBERT PLANT, COMMON, SHERYL CROW, CEE LO GREEN, GEORGE CLINTON, DUFF MCKAGAN, MISSY ELLIOTT, JOHN FOGERTY, and JANELLE MONÁE. “Why is the company asking Congress once again to step in and gut the royalties that thousands of musicians rely upon? That’s not fair and that’s now how partners work together.” Read the full story at this location.
