Music Modernization Act Passed: Industry, Politicians Welcome 'The Most Important Piece of Legislation in a Generation'
Billboard reports: "In the end, getting together the Music Modernization Act might have been harder than writing a hit song. But after years of trying to get copyright legislation passed on Tuesday (Sept. 18), it finally happened, with now both the Senate and the House unanimously passing the legislation. Although, the legislation is still not a done deal until the Senate’s version is approved by the House of Representatives and then signed into law by President Donald Trump. If and when that happens, record labels, publishers, songwriters and artist hope that the legislation proves as lucrative as a hit song."
