    [TD]Iam writing to ask for your urgent help. An important piece of legislation has just been introduced in Congress that could end long-standing discrimination against Internet radio. I'm asking that you contact your Senator to urge them to support the Internet Radio Fairness Act.

    [TD]This bipartisan bill will correct the incredible inequity in how different digital
    radio formats are treated under the law when it comes to setting royalties. The
    difference is quite extraordinary. In 2011, Pandora paid over 50% of our
    revenues in performance royalties, while SiriusXM paid less than 10%.

    [TD]As a lifelong musician, I'm fully supportive of artist compensation, but this
    situation can't continue. Internet radio is bringing millions of listeners back
    to music, and is playing the songs of tens of thousands of promising artists who
    would otherwise never be heard. It should be given a fair chance to succeed.

    [TD]
    To voice your support for this initiative, please reach out to your Senator today
    and say you support the Internet Radio Fairness Act.

    [TD]It's crucial that Congress hears from fans of Internet radio today.
    Thanks for your support, and thanks for being a loyal listener.
