If the major label cartel had hoped their small cahs settlements following Elliott Spitzer's New York based investigation into the fixing of US radio market was going to draw a line to their illegal and unethical behaviour, their hopes are going to be dashed. The American Association of Independent Music is pushing the FCC for a new, full investigation into what went on, and for the majors to be given larger fines, more in line with "the financial harm caused nationally".

The A2IM point to the disparity between the airtime enjoyed by indie labels in the US (roughly 10%) and their sales (27%).

This sort of pie-throwing really upsets the bosses at Universal, you know.
