Like Fairness?

The Copyright Alliance is well worth joining.  It brings creators together to support one another, so authors try to help out musicians, or photographers, or film makers, and so forth.  From time to time, there is a bill in Congress that they ask copyright enthusiasts to support by topping and tailing a pre-written form letter.

Today, there is the American Music Fairness Act (AMFA) House Resolution 4130.

America is one of the very few countries in the world that allows radio stations to play music without paying the song writers and copyright owners of the music.

Of course, you can paraphrase or personalize the pre-written letter, but it is a convenient starting point.

So, please contact your Representative in Congress and urge their support for the American Music Fairness Act. Click on this link, fill out the brief form, and the Copyright Alliance's campaign will automatically contact your Congressional representatives with an email requesting their support for the bill.

Thank you for helping out, if so inclined.

The Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts is hosting a Copyright Basics online event on October 20th. The cost is $20. The speaker is Joshua Kaufman of Venable LLP.

One of many topics is  "Basics Of Fair Use"!

All the best,
