Press Release by AIMP organization
Press Run Date - August 5, 2016

The Association Of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) is extremely disappointed with the DOJ’s official announcement yesterday regarding their decision on no changes being allowed to the ASCAP and BMI consent decrees and the enforcement of 100% licensing as opposed to fractional licensing which has always been the norm.  Once again, the DOJ has failed to take into consideration the innumerable comments from not only songwriters and music publishers (and their representative organizations) but also our own Copyright Office.  We fully support all legal and legislative efforts announced yesterday to be undertaken by BMI and ASCAP to protect our fellow publishers as well as all songwriters and composers.  The DOJ has inserted themselves into our business where they don’t belong and it has both domestic and international ramifications.  As stated in our previous July 12th joint statement with the CMPA and A2IM, 100% licensing is 100% wrong.

 


ABOUT AIMP
The Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) was formed in 1977 by a group of Los Angeles music publishers, and has local chapters in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville collectively representing over 700 members. The organization's primary focus is to educate and inform music publishers about the most current industry trends and practices by providing a forum for the discussion of the issues and problems confronting the music publishing industry.  The opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with others on issues of mutual concern is fostered by the informal atmosphere of the AIMP's monthly meetings, forums, and workshops, the videos of which can be seen (along with more general info on the organization) at http://www.aimp.org.
