If you're an Internet radio station made to let fans listen to artists, stop bitching about having to pay too much to artists. That's just uncool.

Am I misunderstanding the post, or don't artists already make fractions of a cent on internet streams? How could it possibly be decreased any more?

You take a fraction of a cent; and multiply that by .85.

For example, if an artist gets .01 cents every time a song is played, they would now make .00085 cents every time a song is played.

You misunderstood my disgruntled state with actual confusion.

Ahh. Gotcha.

In any case, what would make more sense would be to raise the Satelite radio rates.

If you take the small rates as they are, and slash them 85%, the only people who end up hurt are the artists.

Pandora sends emails about this shit all the time, and it's getting quite god damn annoying to keep receiving emails saying "hey we pay too think we pay much to artists and we want more money in our pockets and less in theirs, help us screw the artists out of money!"
