I am getting reports that Royalty rates have been set at 9% for 2013 and go up half a point a year through 2017.  If this is correct it is very good news for SiriusXM.  Working on confirmation now.

Update - While I have had several people send communications regarding royalty rates, I have been unable to find any concrete confirmation on this.

Bullet Points are usually for SiriusBuzz Premium members, but this one is available to all readers.  Thank You all for supporting the site and making SiriusBuzz and SiriusBuzz Premium the de facto destination for all things Satellite radio!
