National Music Publishers' Association Welcomes Introduction Of The Perform Act
National Music Publishers' Association President and CEO David Israelite released the following statement regarding the Platform Equality and Remedies for Rights Holders in Music Act of 2006, or the "Perform Act," new legislation to protect songwriters and music publishers while encouraging the growth of digital radio:
"The National Music Publishers' Association supports this important legislation, which will protect music as it is transmitted over digital radio. It is crucial that Congress update antiquated copyright laws in these days of rapidly emerging technologies.
"The songs we love and their creators need to be protected under the law. By passing the PERFORM Act, Congress will make certain that songwriters, music publishers and other members of the music community are compensated for their intellectual property.
"Platforms like High Definition and Satellite radio should be able to thrive and expand, but not at the expense of those who worked so hard to create the music that fans crave. Ultimately, this bill will allow the consumer more ways than ever to get high-quality digital music, while fostering an environment that will lead to the creation of more music.
"The NMPA applauds Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Frist (R-TN) for their efforts on the behalf of music publishers, songwriters and music fans everywhere."
