The US Dept. of Justice is currently considering a drastic change in the way that music is licensed through the PROs, specifically the elimination of fractional licensing.  This seemingly innocuous development would likely have wide-ranging and damaging effects on the value of our music.  ASCAP and BMI both have excellent explanations of the issue and a means to take action on their sites.

The PMA stands with PROs in support of maintaining the value of music.  We strongly recommend that our members get informed and let their voices be heard.

Take action now!
