Should the method of delivery of radio (Internet or cable) affect musicians' royalties?


There is a proposal, supported by Pandora Internet Radio (link), that would set up a uniform royalty structure for radio services on the Internet, cable, and satellite.  The Washington Post story Nov. 26 by Hayley Tsukayama “Music royalties fight continues” is here.

Opponents say that the measure would reduce royalties for many musicians whose music is broadcast by services like Sirius XM for cars (which I have on my Ford Focus).
