The Music Modernization Act passes in
House Judiciary Committee!
Here’s a great break down of who’s fighting the good fight on the Hill. A collection of music business luminaries combining their efforts to pass this historic legislation. SONA’s Michelle Lewis in the mix getting our message heard loud and clear!
Read below for our breakdown of the Music Modernization Act:
We are Songwriters of North America
SONA (Songwriters of North America) is an advocacy organization formed by and for professional songwriters to fight for our rights; our right to fair pay in the age of digital media; our right to speak out and give a collective voice to the songwriting community; And in lieu of a union to uphold the standards of safety and equality in our workplaces, where music is created.
The current rates paid to writers by music streaming media companies are grossly unfair, unsustainable, and unacceptable. We’ve assembled some of the most fiercely passionate and hardworking people from all corners of the songwriting world to educate, strategize, and mobilize…and with our legal support team, comprised of truly the best creative-rights legal minds in our industry, we are making a difference.
