Fair Play Fair Pay Act Adds Another Sponsor as Rep. Wasserman Schultz Signs Onto Bill

24 October 2017

WASHINGTON – Today, musicFIRST Executive Director Chris Israel praised U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s co-sponsorship of the Fair Play Fair Pay Act (H.R. 1836):

“From Jazz and Country, to Pop, Latin and all the genres in between, Florida is home to a vibrant and eclectic mix of music and artists. The musicFIRST coalition, and the tens of thousands of music creators we represent, are grateful to Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz for joining the bipartisan chorus of voices advocating for the rights of music creators through the Fair Play Fair Pay Act.

“Passing Fair Play Fair Pay would ensure that music creators are finally paid fairly when recordings of their songs are played on the radio, satellite stations, streaming services and over the internet. Absent these much-needed technology neutral rules, music creators today get as little as zero dollars in return when their songs are played, even though the outlets playing their songs reap billions in advertising dollars.

“We thank Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz for acting to change this injustice for the good of music creators in Florida and across the country.”
