Are you saying it wasn't already dying? :)

Those are set in stone, but similar rates and terms probably soon will
be.  Remember, they are retroactive to 1998 or so.

Someone was saying the big broadcasters (Spinner/NetRadio/Live365) owe
on the order of $225,000/mo retroactively.  Heh :)  I haven't run the
numbers but I don't think anyone but aol really has that kind of money
