RIAA on CARP, WIPO and DCMA

Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: MusicDish - May 22, 2002

On May 21, Librarian of Congress James Billington threw out the royalty rate set by the three-member Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel. As the RIAA's (Recording Industry Association of America) new president Cary Sherman says, .".. we do not know why or what decision the Librarian will ultimately make based on the evidence presented. Since both sides appealed the panel's determination, anything is possible."

Indeed.

But why the sudden, unheralded promotion for Sherman, who until a couple of days ago was RIAA senior executive VP and general counsel?

Was Hilary 'Reach Out' Rosen, former president and now RIAA chairman (chairman? That's what it says on the web site) as well as CEO, 'promoted' to move her out of harm's way?

If it was, it didn't work because in her new capacity, Reach Out has issued a typically appalling puff-piece pinned to the official May 20 launch of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Phonograms and Performances Treaty (WPPT).

Headlined not "Rosen Reaches Out to Congress" but, even better, "STATEMENT BY HILARY ROSEN, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF THE RIAA SALUTING THE WIPO 'INTERNET' TREATIES AND CONGRESSIONAL CHAMPIONS OF THE DIGITAL MILLENIUM COPYRIGHT ACT", Reach Out says:

"In celebration of an important international movement to protect intellectual property, I salute the members of Congress and those from the international community who worked tirelessly to support the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT), the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act."

That'll make Congress and the international community sleep better.
