213 Recording Artists and Music Organizations Urge Congress to Close 1972 Sound Recording Loophole

March 5, 2018

 213 legacy recording artists— including Billy Joel, Roseanne Cash, and Tina Turner— joined eight music organizations—A2IM, American Federation of Musicians, Content Creators Coalition, musicFIRST Coalition, Recording Academy, Recording Industry Association of America, SAG-AFTRA and SoundExchange— in a letter to Congress, explaining that pre-1972 recording artists are not compensated for digital radio use under current copyright laws and urging “Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act and other pro-artist reforms quickly” to “correct this inequity and finally ensure that musicians and vocalists who made those timeless songs finally get their due.”
