How should New Media address standard Broadcast Rates?

Wondering what the Stage32 verse has to say about this. I have a mixed feelings, since the budgets are so varied (and non-existent) on a lot of these new media, and its about getting content out to be recognized... https://www.voiceoverxtra.com/article.htm?id=E66CRNGI

This is a huge deal these days. Too many people think "web only" means Non-Broadcast. This is as far from the truth as it gets. By agreeing to do a spot in perpetuity means, should a client in the future want you to sign a non-compete clause, you may not be able to because of a past job. We - all of us - must educate our clients to this new world. Agreeing to a length of time as in union rates - must be introduced. When possible, bring this point up in discussion with your clients. Agree to anything you feel comfortable with. 13 weeks, 6 months, 1 year etc. with an option for them to renew. I've done it and it works with some. Thanks for bringing this us. It is a big deal. As part of World-Voices.org, the members are looking at the best way for us to address this new world wide media.
