Hearing on Ensuring Artists Fair Compensation: Updating thePerformance Right and Platform Parity for the 21st Century

The Copyright Office is having a hearing tomorrow to discuss expanding the sound recording performance royalty to analog broadcasters. The good news is that this will entail a rewrite of Section 114 and there is a good chance that this rewrite would put internet radio, satellite radio and over the air radio on the same basis for royalties. Currently, Internet Radio pays the highest royalty rates of any medium.
