SAG-AFTRA Statement on the Passage of the Music Modernization Act
September 19, 2018
SAG-AFTRA commends the United States Senate for passing the Music Modernization Act.
SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said the following:
“The Senate’s passage of the Music Modernization Act ensures that our singers and sound recording artists will at last be justly compensated for their pre-1972 works on digital and satellite platforms. We thank the Republicans and Democrats who together voted to correct this injustice and move the music industry forward. This is a great day for all the artists and creators whose work has and will continue to bring joy to millions of people across the globe. I’d also like to thank SAG-AFTRA members for their thousands of emails to Congress. Their voices were heard.
“We now urge the House of Representatives to pass the Senate bill quickly and look forward to the president signing this important legislation into law.”
Ahhh…Music to Many Ears!
