Salon.com has the story. "Under the terms of the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), radio stations
around the country are supposed to pay thousands of dollars in annual fees to broadcast
streaming audio over the Web. Managers of college and community stations say while
their commercial counterparts may be able to pay the fees, their stations don't have the
cash and will shut down their webcasts."
