June 21 L.A. Luncheon / Capitol Hill update / Music First Coalition

Posted June 15, 2007

by E. Steigen

Hello AIMP Members and friends,

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, June 21 at the Luxe Hotel, 11461 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049 (Note the location) where the National Music Publishers' Association's president David Israelite will give us a valuable update on the latest developments in Washington D.C. 

We also very much appreciate the responses from you to our website survey.  Our website committee is reviewing the feedback and will make suggestions to the rest of the AIMP board based on your answers.

For those of you who also represent artists, you may also know that today was the Music First Coalition's launch of the fight for sound recording performance rights on traditional radio in the United States.  I suggest you check out their website: http://www.musicfirstcoalition.org/ This is a great cause for recording artists and could mean hundreds of millions of dollars in additional artist revenue.  The U.S. is the only industrialized country where there is no so-called neighboring rights on terrestrial radio, TV, and in clubs and restaurants.  In the UK alone over $200 million is collected annually and distributed 50/50 to record companies and artists from these outlets. 

Again, we look forward to seeing you next week for our June luncheon!

Best regards,

Erik Steigen
