Today a new generation of artist leaders has the opportunity to pick up Sinatra’s mantle and continue the fight for a performance right in the United States. The U.S. currently stands in the company of China, Iran and North Korea as the handful of nations that still refuse to recognize the rights of music creators. By failing to fairly pay artists when their music is played here at home, we also lose out on royalties artists are entitled to when their music is played abroad. Correcting this injustice is long overdue. It’s time bring together music creators and their fans to fight for a performance right.
