Two Congressman Seek To Upend Radio Royalties

Hey, radio industry: Reps.  Darrell Issa  (R-Calif.) and  Ted Deutch  (D-Fla.) just may be your two most disliked members of Congress, thanks to legislation introduced Wednesday (4/5) in the House of Representatives. Issa, Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee for Courts, Intellectual Property; and Deutch, a member of the Subcommittee; introduced bipartisan legislation that would “fix a decades-old inequity in copyright law that allows terrestrial radio stations to play music without compensating performers.” Introducing H.R 1914 , known as the “ Performance Royalty Owners of Music Opportunity To Earn Act of 2017 ” (or, “PROMOTE Act”), which would allow performing artists to opt out of having their music played on the radio if the performing artist is not being paid an agreed-upon performance royalty. Issa and viagra canada purchase Deutch are also co-sponsors of the “ Fair Play Fair Pay Act ,” which seeks to create “a modern and uniform system of rules governing music licensing for digital and terrestrial radio broadcasts.” Explaining his rationale for the legislation, Issa said, “The PROMOTE Act calls the bluff of both sides in the debate over performance rights. The terrestrial stations playing these works without compensating the artists argue that airtime provides exposure and promotional value, while the artists argue the status-quo allows radio stations to profit on artists’ performances without providing any due compensation.
