The RIAA is petitioning the Federal Govt's Copyright Royalty Judges to lower the rates paid to publishers and songwriters for use of lyrics and melodies in applications like cell phone ring tones and other digital recordings.

The last time the American government set the rate was in 1981, but since that time, the RIAA argues in its petition, a lot has changed.

"While record companies and music publishers were able to agree on royalty rates during that 25-year period, the assumptions on which those decisions were based have changed beyond recognition," the RIAA brief reads.

This is pathetic, and I hope the petition is turned down, as well as putting some artists out of the RIAA's grasp. Basically all they want to do is have to pay less money to the artists, so they have more.
