Please sign this petition to let Congress know you support H.R. 4706, the “Music Modernization Act of 2017.”
Legislation has been introduced in Congress that will give songwriters a new rate standard for digital mechanical royalties which should lead to better streaming royalty rates. The bill creates a new mechanical licensing entity that will represent all songwriters equally at no cost, establishes a licensing process controlled by music publishers and songwriters instead of tech companies or the government, ends the disastrous Copyright Office mass “Notice of Intent” program, and mandates songwriters receive more than half of all unclaimed funds.
