musicFIRST files complaint as advertised


The FCC filing from RIAA-backed musicFIRST came in pretty much as advertised. It accuses radio of inhibiting its right to state its case, particularly over radio airwaves, and it names a few group names, including Clear Channel and Greater Media. It says radio groups are making misleading claims on their own behalf, and prominently mentions Radio One. It mentions NAB coordinating the effort, and attached a letter to members from former CEO David Rehr exhorting radio station to resist PRA, including use of their own airwaves for messages on the topic. It alleges that artists are being intimidated, but does not mention who they might be. NAB has argued that this complaint is nothing more than a stunt.
