Recording Academy Statement Re: The CLASSICS Act

“The CLASSICS Act is an important addition to the Fair Play Fair Pay Act that demonstrates continued momentum for passage of comprehensive music legislation. While the oldest distribution model – radio – continues to live in the past, believing artists should not be paid, newer digital services are working with artists to resolve issues once thought intractable.  We support this legislation and thank Reps. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for their continued leadership to update music licensing.”
