Trump Signs Landmark Music Bill Ahead Of Kanye Meeting

Howard TerryOct 14, 2018

Phillips Nizer partner Helene Freeman, who served as co-counsel in Led Zeppelin's case over the rights to "Stairway to Heaven", notes, "The Music Modernization Act's CLASSICS section gives federal protection for pre-1972 sound recordings so that recording artists can get paid for the streaming of their records on digital platforms like Pandora and Spotify and SiriusXM".

The former bill turned law ensures artists receive the compensation they are owed, encourages fair industry competition, and protects the intellectual property rights of studios nationwide-among.

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West said, as part of a lengthy monologue that touched on topics such as his mental health to employment, prison reform, and more.

This will be the second time the Gold Digger hitmaker has met with Trump since his election as president, as they met at Trump Tower in New York City in December 2016, shortly after he won that year's presidential vote. "The MMA will benefit the music community and create a more transparent and streamlined approach to music licensing and payment for artists".

Neil Portnow, President and CEO, Recording Academy, said this will ensure all music creators are compensated fairly when their work is used by digital and satellite music services.

President Donald Trump surrounded himself with some all-star talent while signing legislation that would overhaul music licensing practices - and received thanks for trying to intervene to help pop icon Whitney Houston. We build factories here in America to create jobs.

President Trump signed the Music Modernization Act into law on Thursday, a move that will affect a wide array of industry standards for the way artists are compensated. "Today is about their future and this bill stands as a great statement on what can be done when we work together".
