Congress hasn't done anything to internet radio yet.
The Librarian of Congress set royaly fees for internet radio,
that would put them out of business, except for a few major players like Yahoo.

But it may go to Congress, where it could be overturned,
and rates based on fairness adopted, instead of greed.

I thought that Napster agreed to charge a subscription if you wanted to download the music, so the RIAA was happy, and the case was closed
