CBI Reaches Webcasting Settlement Through 2016!

CBI has been working long and hard to address the most troublesome the legal issues concerning webcasting for student college radio stations.  We have achieved results along the way (SWSA settlement of 2003, less stringent recordkeeping and reporting requirements than proposed, etc.) After years of filing comments, visiting with lawmakers, surveying members, etc., etc., etc.,  we are now able to report that we have achieved meaningful, long-term results through a settlement under the Webcaster Settlement Act of 2009 and potentially more!  Some highlights…

  • Stations that average under 75 simultaneous users will have the option of submitting reports of use that do not require any audience data (ATH of ATP) or paying a $100 proxy fee in lieu of any reporting.
  • Stations with an average concurrent audience of over 75 will be required to submit reports of use, but they will not have to submit audience data.
  • The fee for these stations remains at $500 annually through 2016 unless the station has an ATH above 159, 140 (~208 average concurrent users in any month).
