SoundExchange issued the following statement today after NPR withdrew from the MIC Coalition:
“Just a month after launch, the MIC Coalition lost yet another member today when NPR joined Amazon in rejecting the organization’s anti-artist agenda and dropping out of the MIC Coalition. SoundExchange applauds NPR for taking this stand for the future of music and artists everywhere. We look forward to continuing our long-standing, positive collaboration with NPR.
“Now more than ever it is vital that music creators and music lovers everywhere stand together to fight for the future of music. Please write your member of Congress and ask them to support the Fair Play Fair Pay Act to ensure all artists are paid every time their music is played, on every platform.”
