Artists' Pay For Radio Play Rally & Concert

Bookmark and Share

Presented by Content Creators Coalition-NYC
Tuesday February 25th 6-9 pm
Le Poisson Rouge:
http://www.lepoissonrouge.com/lpr_events/i-respect-music-february-25th-2014/

This free admission event will feature speakers, music, videos, and networking opportunities.

Artists including David Byrne, Mike Mills (REM), Marilyn Carino, John McCrea (CAKE) Marc Ribot, Tift Merritt, Jason Moran (via video) and Jennifer Charles (Elysian Fields) will perform to highlight the issue. They will perform songs originally made famous by artists who were not the composers- and who therefore received nothing for radio play.

Speakers to include Wendy Oxenhorn (Exec. Director, Jazz Foundation of America) and Chris Ruen (author of "Freeloading: How Our Insatiable Hunger for Free Content Starves Creativity") and Rosanne Cash (by video).

The USA stands today with a short list of countries (Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda) that lack a performance royalty for artists. This means that Aretha Franklin, for example, receives no income from the radio play of "Respect" (composers do receive royalties, but Aretha is not the composer). Not only do US artists/musicians receive nothing, but they're also blocked from receiving royalties collected on our behalf all over the world.

The event's sponsors demand congressional action to remedy this scandalous situation. They have chosen to back the issue itself, rather than any particular bill, in the interests of enabling a wide and effective coalition as they build public support.

From the petition on CCC-NYC.org:
"We, the Undersigned, join with the CCC-NYC 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."
