FYI everyone. Latest draft of the Music Modernization Act is available here.
The 2nd Draft of Music Modernization Act 3/22/18 was released publicly today. We are reviewing and will post comments in the coming days.
The first thing I noticed is that the tragic demonstration of the raw lobbying power of Big Tech: The litigation reach back safe harbor seems to still be in there which is designed to deny due process and other Constitutional protections to songwriters whose works are infringed prior to the enactment of the Music Modernization Act.
Plus the one-sided board of directors is still the inverse of the publisher/songwriter control in other countries, 70% publishers and 30% songwriters.
