June 17, 2009: Amicus brief filed

“In ASCAP v. RealNetworks, Inc., Yahoo!, Inc. AIMP has joined the NMPA, MPA, CMPA, and PMA and other music organizations as amicus parties asking the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to clarify that a musical work public performance royalty is payable on audiovisual downloads.  Music publishers receive a mechanical royalty (currently 9.1 cents per song up to five minutes) from digital downloads of sound recordings, but do not receive a public performance royalty from digital transmissions of films, television programs and other audiovisual works, as they do when broadcast and cablecast on conventional television and radio.”
