SUPPORT THE INTERNET RADIO FAIRNESS ACT

By superadmin,

FIT Radio’s primary purpose is to provide our listeners with up-beat mixes that motivate
our users to keep moving in an energetic and positive direction. Currently, we at FIT
Radio ask our users to take just a few minutes to help keep us moving in a direction to
better serve those who enjoy our app and the artists that make our content so incredible
and unique. We respectfully ask our listeners to contact their representatives to
support the Internet Radio Fairness Act.
Ever since the Internet and music have crossed paths, this union has invited a stream of
contention and conversation between listeners, musical artists, music providers, and of
course, the federal government. This ongoing conversation primarily centers on how
music providers should compensate musical artists for playing their music. In other
words, the issue of how to handle royalties has dominated the discussion. Unfortunately,
these royalty stipulations placed on Internet radio (including FIT Radio) providers
hinders their ability to play the songs and artists you know and love. Even worse, the
rigors of royalties may prevent you from enjoying up-and-coming artists that FIT Radio
features.
Presently, royalty restrictions place discriminatory and outdated penalties on Internet
radio providers that somehow escape the satellite-based SiriusXM. For example, last
year alone, SiriusXM only had to pay 10 percent of their revenues to artists, while the
Internet-based Pandora shelled out a staggering 50 percent of their revenues to artists.
Yes, royalties took up half of Pandora’s revenues, and FIT Radio is under the same fire.
This glaring difference is solely due to outdated royalty laws. Changing these unfair laws
is not only crucial to our existence and your enjoyment of the music we play, such a
change is now finally possible.
All you have do to is take a few minutes to call, email, or even Tweet your representative
(insert name and link here) to support the Internet Radio Fairness Act. Doing so will not
only help us continue to create the mixes you enjoy, contacting [your representative] will
help aspiring talented artists to have their music heard.

 

Thank you all for listening and for your support,
