New legislation introduced in both houses of Congress introduces the AM-FM Act to Get Artists & Labels Paid for Radio Play
The Ask Musicians for Music Act (AM-FM) would require radio stations to get consent from recording artists to play their music. The legislation was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and in the House by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who called the current copyright system for radio “patchwork” and said the act would require all radio services to pay a fair market value for the music they use.
Billboard explains “This bill follows the Fair Play Fair Pay Act, which Blackburn and Nadler introduced in 2015 and 2017 to achieve the same goal.” KOP breaks down the backstory.
