According to recent copyright legislation, Roehl Sybing, maintainer and DJ of J-Pop Monday is being forced to close his webcast of Japanese pop music.

Roehl wrote,
"J-Pop Monday will have its finale on April 1. Copyright legislation, which calls for royalties on all songs broadcast over the Internet, has forced WNYU off the air effective 4/5, so 3/25 and 4/1 will be my final broadcasts."

Because of this sudden cancellation, J-Pop Monday will hold two anime contests, each offering a $50 gift certificate for Right Stuf.

If you wish to listen or participate, go to and click "Listen Live" during the J-Pop Monday show. The final two broadcasts are Monday, March 25th and April 1st, both from Noon-2pm EST (9am-11am PST). The Studio Line to call during the broadcasts is (212) 998-1818.
