    Summary:
    Iconic band is latest to lash out at Pandora's attempts to cut royalties to artists

    -- "The war of words between Pandora and much of the music industry continues to escalate. The latest volley was fired by none other than members of the iconic rock band Pink Floyd, who lashed out at the web radio service in an editorial published over the weekend.

    Roger Waters, David Gilmour, and Nick Mason accused Pandora of trying to deceive music artists into joining the company's effort to cut artist royalties. Pandora is expected to again ask Congress to lower the royalties that web radio pays for music, and recently sent a mass email to music acts asking them to sign a petition to support web radio.

    SOME IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY ARE TALKING ABOUT A NUCLEAR OPTION: PULLINGS SONGS FROM PANDORA"

    Go Pandora! Everyone should realize that PF are just playing the roles of mouthpieces for EMI.
