SIGN THE PETITION: Tell Congress to Support Artists' Pay for Radio Play

Dear Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet:

I join music makers and music lovers alike in urging Congress to support artists' pay for radio play.

The United States is the only democratic country in the world where artists don't get paid for radio airplay. Currently, the short list of countries that share the United States' position on this issue includes: Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda.

As Congress reviews radio airplay royalties, we ask that you stand by American artists and musicians to ensure they are paid when their work is played on the radio.

Thank you for recognizing the importance of this matter and the need for its long overdue and timely resolution.

I Respect Music. #IRespectMusic

Sincerely,

DID YOU KNOW?

The United States is the only democratic country in the world where artists don’t get paid for radio airplay.

The short list of countries that share the United States’ position on this issue includes Iran, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Rwanda.

As a result of not paying their artists for radio airplay here in the United States, other democratic countries aren’t paying American artists in their countries.
