Songwriter Petition to Congress - PLEASE SIGN!


Error message

To enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, NSAI will be closed beginning Wednesday November 21 at 2:00PM Central and then will re-open Monday November 26 at 10:00am Central. We hope everyone enjoys the holiday!


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.
