Intercollegiate Broadcasting System Files Appeal of CRB Royalty Decision
/ May 4, 2007 7:37 pm

Washington – The Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS), a non-profit that represents over 1,000 U.S. high school and college radio stations, announced on Friday that it has filed an appeal of the Copyright Royalty Board's recent royalty rate decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The CRB has increased the rates stations like those operated by IBS must pay to stream music online; many webcasters have said the new rates will put them out of business.

IBS COO David Kass told Wired that the court will now select three judges from the U.S. Appeals Court pool to hear the proceeding, and a Chief Judge to rule on procedural motions.

Kass added that other parties may join IBS in its appeal.
