Time for Fairness for Music Creators! -You Spoke, Washington Listened!
Just two weeks ago, hundreds of music creators came to Washington, DC for GRAMMYs on the Hill to advocate for fair pay for songwriters, artists, and studio professionals. Then hundreds more of you flooded Congress with e-mails with the same message. We’re excited to tell you that Washington is hearing you loud and clear.
Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee held its last hearing on copyright law. The witness, U.S. Register of Copyrights Maria Pallante (who has personally met with Academy members around the country), challenged the committee to fix music law now. She went on to applaud the Academy-backed Fair Play Fair Pay Act as an “excellent legislative framework” for addressing music issues. And Pallante specifically noted that her meetings with Academy members were “inspiring.”
Washington is listening, but our work isn’t done. Now that the Register of Copyrights has called on Congress to enact music licensing reform, we need to tell Congress to answer the call. Click here and use our advocacy tools to send a message to your Member of Congress. And we’ll personally hand-deliver a printed copy of your e-mail to Capitol Hill.
Thank you for all you do for music creators.
