Washington, D.C. – In a statement issued today, the Copyright Alliance commended Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) for introducing the Allocation for Music Producers (AMP) Act – S. 2625, and for their continued support of our nation’s creators, including supporting those who work behind the scenes in today’s music industry.
According to Alliance CEO Keith Kupferschmid, “The AMP Act will create a consistent legal process for contracted studio professionals including record producers and engineers to receive royalties for their contributions to music that they help create. We thank Chairman Grassley, Ranking Member Feinstein, and Senators Corker and Harris for their leadership, along with Reps. Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Thomas J. Rooney (R-FL), and all of the representatives who cosponsored this legislation in the House; and urge that the AMP Act be promptly considered and approved.”
