Quotes

The Local Radio Freedom Act is a resolution that would prohibit "any new performance fee, tax, royalty, or other charge” on local AM/FM radio stations and is supported by a majority of the House."
...We are moving into a world where people no longer own the music they love, they stream it whenever and wherever they want," Williams said. "At the same time, the federal regulations that govern how music is licensed - and thus, how songwriters, like me, are compensated for our work - don't reflect the way people listen to music today. Indeed, they are stuck in the distant past. And it's threatening the very future of American music."
"We're in a holding pattern," Potter said. "This is obviously not the time for people to be launching new ventures. We've got to resolve this before the industry can get to the next level."
Huppe called to level the playing field across all forms of radio: "Congress must get out of the business of picking winners and losers in this industry. If we want innovation, the law shouldn't give favorable rates to some companies or breaks to older formats. Stated another way, these businesses should compete based on their public appeal and economic value - NOT on the strength of loopholes."
