There’s legislation in Congress that aims to help songwriters earn a fair value for our work.
It’s called the MUSIC MODERNIZATION ACT. This bill includes provisions that help reform the outdated and out-of-step regulations that disadvantage songwriters in the digital age – regulations that haven’t been updated since before the invention of the iPod.
Specifically, these provisions aim to improve the system that sets the rates that songwriters are paid when their music is played on a streaming service or in a bar or restaurant. The goal is for songwriter payments to more closely mimic the free market so that music better reflects its value to the people who listen to it and the businesses that benefit from it.
The time to act is now. Join us in telling our representatives in Washington that we need the Music Modernization Act.
to see how you can get involved.
