The CCC presents: The #irespectmusic Campaign And The New Grassroots Artist Rights Advocacy

Blake Morgan founded the #irespectmusic campaign to support fair treatment for creators, starting with over 13,000 signers of a petition calling on Congress to support artist pay for radio play. After Reps. Jerry Nadler and Marsha Blackburn introduced the Fair Play, Fair Pay Act, #irespectmusic supporter and radio programmer Karoline Kramer-Gould co-signed a letter to Chairman Bob Goodlatte supporting Fair Play, Fair Pay, the only radio worker to take a public position contrary to the National Association of Broadcasters. 

#irespectmusic has also embraced support for the Songwriter Equity Act through a partnership with the National Music Publishers Association. David Israelite, NMPA’s CEO, referred to #irespectmusic as the largest spontaneous grassroots movement in American music history.

The panel will discuss the importance of artist rights advocacy at the grassroots level, citizen engagement and lessons learned from the #irespectmusic campaign.
