RECORDING ACADEMY™ STATEMENT ON FINAL PASSAGE OF THE MUSIC MODERNIZATION ACT IN THE HOUSE
SEPT. 25, 2018

The trajectory of the Music Modernization Act has shown the power of music creators to effect real change. From its unanimous approval in the House of Representatives in April, to its passage in the Senate last week, we have seen unprecedented advocacy from the music community. With today's final passage of the bill in the House, we are one step away from the most sweeping music copyright reform since the 8-track tape era, and we look forward to this being signed into law.
