TRA Statement Re: Fair Play Fair Pay Act


“As momentum builds for congressional copyright reform, the Fair Play Fair Pay Act is a core issue. Radio is the only business in America that can use another’s property without permission or compensation. The bill protects small stations and only asks corporate radio to do what Internet and satellite radio already do: compensate the creators who record the music that drives their business.  We applaud Representatives Nadler, Blackburn, Conyers, Issa, Deutch, and Rooney for their leadership in resolving this decades-long injustice.”
