SUPPORT GROWS FOR FAIR PLAY FAIR PAY ACT

 


Washington, D.C. (June 6, 2017) – Chris Israel, executive director of the musicFIRST Coalition, issued the following statement today on growing support for the Fair Play Fair Pay Act:


 “On behalf of music creators across the country, we applaud U.S. Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) and Darren Soto (D-Fla.) for defending artists’ rights for fair compensation no matter where their music is heard.


“The music landscape has changed dramatically over the last decade with the advent of digital platforms and satellite stations, and it’s time for copyright laws to catch up.


Their support of the Fair Play Fair Pay Act shows growing momentum for modernizing the copyright laws so that all music platforms operate under the same set of rules.” 


The Fair Play Fair Pay Act is legislation that was introduced in March by U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).
