That's great that WUNH netcasts.  WDIY doesn't have the money to set that 
They've been talking about it for a long time, but no action yet.  But
disturbing news came in from a friend.  Can anyone here substantiate this

Net Access sadly announces that effective immediately WDHA
will no longer be streaming its on-air content over the
Internet.  WDHA is one of many radio stations effected by a
recent court decision.  On April 23, 2001 the US Copyright

paid on streamed content.  The decision has received a mixed

Radio stations pay licensing fees for the music that they
broadcast over the air, the fees are based on audience size.
These licensing fees are distributed to the artists in the
form of royalties.  This decision forces them to pay

over the Internet, effectively doubling their operating
costs.  Several large broadcasting companies have launched a
counter-suit; a decision is still pending.
