   It should be noted that this fee applies only if you are delivering in mp3 
   format "for profit."  If you're doing it for free, you don't have to pay 
   them a dime.. from the quoted URL...

I thought the minimum was $2,000.

If you are streaming "for fun" instead of for profit, will the RIAA
give you a hard time (assuming you don't allow selectable songs, or
more than 3 from the same CD per hour), or is that free too?
