“Performance Rights Act” Bill Headed to Senate Judiciary Committee for Vote

Reports are that the Judiciary Committee is poised to send the bill on to the full Senate for a vote. If passed, the fear is it will put many small market music radio stations out of business. For a summary of the competing views, click to my prior post.

The symbiotic relationship between musical artists and the radio stations that have helped them generate sales since before Elvis first swiveled his hips is in danger of changing, and I am not sure it’s for the better. If you have an opinion on this issue, now is the time to get your voice heard. Call your U.S Senator and Members of Congress now before the opportunity is lost.
