Two Sincere Questions for The Future Of Music Coalition #SFMUSICTECH

We notice that Future of Music Coalition has submitted testimony to congress asking that they “represent” artists in the Copyright Reform process begun by Congress.

So since they’ve  volunteered to represent us.  We feel it only fair that they answer these two questions:

1. Who selects your advocacy positions?  
AFM, AFTRA, NARAS, Nashville Songwriters Assn, and ASCAP all have democratically elected boards who set the organizations’ positions.  Do you have members who vote for leadership?  If not, who is making those decisions?

2. Who funds your organization?
Google is listed as your first sponsor of your primary event.

How much money do you get from Google?  Do you think you should be taking funding from a source many artists believe to be opposed to their interests?

  2. I would also want to know why certain people are on FMC’s board if it purports to represent artists. Specifically folks like Eben Moglen, Gigi Sohn, Larry Lessig, Fred von Lohmann, etc.
