SoundExchange Testifies Before Senate on Protecting the Rights of Music Creators

Today, SoundExchange Chief Legal Officer Colin Rushing will testify at a briefing before the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss the scope of music rights in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

In his testimony, Rushing declared, “Protecting the rights of recording artists to their own work is the unfinished business of the DMCA, of the Music Modernization Act (MMA), and of every copyright law passed since the advent of technology that allowed music performances to be preserved in a recording. It leaves American performers and record labels open to discrimination abroad and results in real and significant loss of income every year.”
