Session Name: The Music Modernization Act--An Oral History
MeetingType: Mid-Winter Meeting
Date: 02/01/19
Description: The Orrin G. Hatch–Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act (“MMA”) was signed into law on October 11, 2018, a major accomplishment for a mostly united music industry. The MMA has many changes in store, including a new royalty collective for the reproduction of songs on digital music services, changes in the treatment of pre-72 sound recordings, and compensation for record producers. Stakeholders and observers from across the music industry, including recorded music, publishing and the Copyright Office, will discuss some of the topics and controversies the new law addresses, how so many were able to come together to get to this historic point, and what lies ahead.
