I'm pretty sure the intent is to get radio stations to play mainstream music by taking away the free indie artist option. By charging for everyone you might as well only play the more famous commercially owned artists who just happen to also be owned by the same people who own the RIAA.
I belonged to an indie artist site that offered internet radio and this was a huge issue because the site was going to have to pay. As it turned out the RIAA was mostly worried about real air radio and big internet sites so we were safe.
