    This appears to be great news for broadcasters of the genres I like but....

    1. Does it set a national precedent so we have uniformity?

    2. Why did 1972 become the important dividing line?

    No. It lets the individual states make their own decisions. What could happen is that higher courts rule in such a way as to specify the extent to which the states can individually and separately specify royalty payments.

    This is a good, fairly clear explanation:

    At issue is the Copyright Act of 1976 which went into effect in 1978 and which set the line of demarcation at 1972. This act replaced and amended the 1909 act which was obviously a relic from pre-electronic communication days.

    Why 1972? A purely arbitrary year, drawn from a hat?
