The European Communities Versus The United States

The International Coalition to repeal the fairness in music licensing act" and restore U. S. performing rights and royalties. The so-called Fairness in Music Licensing Act of 1998 has been highly criticized throughout the music industry. Its enactment contributed to the erosion of the U. S. Copyright Act and deprived music publishers, songwriters and composers of performing rights income from many commercial businesses. The European Communities have filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization alleging that the Fairness in Music Licensing Act violates the TRIPS agreement (GATT) and America's Berne Convention obligations. The protest was initiated by the Irish Music Rights Organization (IMRO).
