Recording Academy Responds, In Four Languages, to Introduction of Radio’s Non-Binding Resolution

Advocacy's picture


In response to the introduction of the National Association of Broadcasters’ nonbinding resolution, also known as the Local Radio Freedom Act, The Recording Academy released a guide on how members of Congress can talk to the broadcasters’ lobby about creation of a performance right on radio.

The guide is in four languages, English, Persian, Korean and Chinese, to remind members of Congress that the United States, Iran, North Korea and China are among the few nations that do not have a performance right on radio.

The Recording Academy will continue to support real legislative efforts in the 115th Congress to ensure that all creators are compensated fairly when their music is played on the radio.
