CLASSICS by the Numbers

09 April 2018

Classic songs we all know aren’t getting the love they deserve under current copyright law. Due to outdated federal copyright laws, the value of artists’ work is often determined by the date on which it was recorded. If a sound recording was made after the arbitrary date of February 15, 1972, the music creators that made the song are entitled to compensation. But if the sound recording was made before that date, no compensation is guaranteed.

This injustice stands to be remedied under the CLASSICS Act. Learn more below about this important legislation and its bipartisan support in both chambers, as well as the popularity among music listeners towards remedying this inequity.
