    Panel Description: Considering that the positions of the Trump administration on copyright and royalty issues are still largely unknown several months into his presidency, this discussion between PROs, politicians and industry professionals will shed some light on what the industry might look for from them moving forward. The panel would address the possible Trump perspective on hot button issues such as the status of the PRO consent decrees, streaming royalty rates and the rate courts, Fair Play Fair Pay, Copyright Act revisions, and more.
