Recording Academy Statement Re: Final Passage Of The BOTS Act

The passage of the BOTS Act is an important win for artists and fans alike, bringing integrity back to the concert-going experience.

Artists set concert prices at affordable rates to ensure fans can attend and enjoy the show. Bots take that power away and sever the connection between artists and fans, while taking ticket prices to unobtainable rates. The BOTS Act gives the power back to the music creators, allowing fans to see their favorite artists without paying exorbitant prices to middlemen who contribute nothing to the show-going experience.

We thank Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.), Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) for their commitment to artists and fans, as well as the hundreds of Recording Academy members who advocated for this legislation.
