Artists, Songwriters Call For Reforms of DMCA


Artists, songwriters, managers and music organizations are calling for reforms of the outdated Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Nearly 400 individual artists, songwriters, managers, and music organizations have joined together to argue for reforms to federal laws to strengthen the music economy and create a healthier, more stable music ecosystem.

Artists are submitting comments to the federal government’s U.S. Copyright Office today and tomorrow demanding reforms to the antiquated DMCA which forces creators to police the entire Internet for instances of theft, placing an undue burden on these artists and favoring technology companies and rogue pirate sites.

Simultaneously, 18 separate major music organizations representing virtually the entire music community submitted a joint brief explaining the flaws in the DMCA – a law passed during the dial-up era – and calling for reforms. And more than 40 managers, representing some of the most successful musicians in the world, separately explained how an increasingly broken law prevents a growing number of musicians from earning a living. All these diverse voices agree that the DMCA has failed to effectively prevent piracy and has distorted the music economy.
