Description: On October 11, 2018, the Music Modernization Act (MMA) was signed into law, a historic moment for the music industry. This groundbreaking legislation would not have been possible without the efforts of Dina LaPolt and Michelle Lewis to protect the rights of music creators in the digital streaming era. Dina and Michelle will offer a comprehensive review of the MMA, including: how the MMA will impact songwriters and independent music publishers, the formation of the Mechanical Licensing Collective (MLC), new licenses issued by the MLC, overhaul of the royalty rate approval process, and the copyright office’s role in implementing these changes.
