Recording Academy Sends Letter to President-elect Donald Trump
On November 29, The Recording Academy’s National Advocacy Committee submitted a letter to President-elect Donald Trump to outline the concerns of the music community and to ask for his support for reforms that will ensure that music creators are compensated fairly for their work.
“As your administration begins to chart its course, this is an important moment to ensure the continued viability of music as one of America’s greatest exports and as an integral part of the American innovation story, fueled by the entrepreneurial spirit of the men and women who make up the creative workforce. In 2015, the U.S. music industry contributed $15 billion dollars to the American economy, creating jobs in every state.”
“We look forward to working with your administration to support the music economy. We urge you to support reform of outdated laws and oppose any regulation that would diminish the value of these creators’ hard work and property rights.”
