Wow, this must have just happened in the last 12 months (I last looked
into this about a year ago).
Can you point out a URL to the info. Actually, not really the info, but
any opinions regarding this from artists, radio stations, mailing list
discussions, etc. I'm sure the RIAA has a page or two up about this,
but it's probably devoid of reasoning, etc.
Thanks for the heads up.
