After years of trying to get Congress to hear the case for terrestrial radio paying royalties to artists and labels for songs they broadcast, it looks like it will happen this week.
Much to the chagrin of National Association of Broadcasters who according to Billboard, ‘has long opposed paying such royalties under the claim that radio play serves as promotion that drives music sales’.
AFTRA sent us a lovely press release that spends an entire paragraph dropping names of important people then it explains what the release is about. We posted it after the jump and after we made fun of their release writing. Enjoy!
