THE THREAT TO FAIR PAY FOR MUSIC CREATORS PERSISTS...
So the fight must go on!
Last year, Discovery Network tried to force composers to give up long-term performance royalties and accept a one-time fixed payment instead. The music community, led by an impressive ad hoc group, fought back in force and Discovery backed off.
This battle showed how networks and tech companies think about music these days; writers and artists are expenses that must be cut to the bone. We stopped them for a bit, but their lawyers are already looking for other ways to shake us down, abandoning long-standing business structures, ruthlessly slashing expenses and employees, and violating agreements, all while their CEOs pocket nine figure salaries.
Join us in standing together as songwriters, composers, performers, and producers who make the music that makes the story sing.
