Please read and consider signing the petition urging Congress to support Artists’ Pay for Radio Play.
We, the Undersigned, join with the Content Creators Coalition in Urging Congress to Support Artists’ Pay for Radio Play.
The United States has the unfortunate distinction of being the only democratic country in the world whose artists and musicians receive no pay for the terrestrial radio airplay of their music. The short list of countries that share the United States’ position on this issue includes: Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda.
We ask that Congress review radio airplay royalties and support American artists and musicians by instituting a terrestrial radio performance royalty.
