On August 20, David Oxenford attended the Texas Association of Broadcasters Annual Convention in Austin Texas. At the Convention, Dave participated with two other Washington attorneys in a session updating broadcasters on legal issues that could affect their operations. He addressed topics including the proposed Broadcast Performance royalty, the proposed increase in power of HD radio operations, and the current state of broadcast indecency regulation.
In a separate session, Dave and addressed the legal issues that arise when a broadcaster streams their station on the Internet, including issues concerning the Internet Radio royalties for the use of sound recordings, as collected by SoundExchange. A copy of Dave’s PowerPoint used in that session is available here.
