Basically on May 21st internet broadcasters will have to pay a fee to RIAA for each song played AND how many liteners for each song. And owe backfees for three years. Even 'real' radio stations that broadcast their feed over the internet will have to pay.

It doesn't look like a hoax, has been covered in many news sources:
