Music Modernization Act Unanimously Passes House, Senate

Washington — Congress has passed legislation that updates music licensing rights for the digital age. The House and Senate have now passed the Music Modernization Act.

The Computer & Communications Industry Association has supported balanced copyright policies and a competitive, modernized music licensing system fit for the digital age for more than 20 years.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“This legislation will give consumers better access to digital music and encourage more innovation and competition among the services that help them get it. Complex and out-of-date licensing processes have been a barrier between music and fans for too long. It was great to see congressional leaders working together and encouraging stakeholders to reach a compromise.”
