SAG-AFTRA Statement on the Release of the Report “Copyrights and the Music Marketplace"

Los Angeles (Feb. 4, 2015) — SAG-AFTRA today issued the following statement regarding the United States Copyright Office’s new report  “Copyrights and the Music Marketplace,” which calls for broad reform of music licensing to provide fair pay for music creators:

“SAG-AFTRA commends the U.S. Copyright Office for conducting its study of music licensing, particularly for endorsing the need for an AM/FM performance right for sound recordings.  While their many detailed proposals will require further review, the Copyright Office’s call for broad reform to make music licensing work better for everyone is a promising sign indeed for the recording artist members of SAG-AFTRA.”
