The article reports on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearing over musicians' right to get paid when radio stations play their songs. Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan had testified before the lawmakers saying that the right to get paid could be put in moral terms and that the issue is one of fundamental fairness. However, station owners argued that to do so would all but mean the difference between life and death for their stations.
