President Trump Signs The Music Modernization Act Into Law, Meets With Kanye West

In a major win for recording artists all over the country, the Music Modernization Act has been signed into law by President Trump. The act helps update copyright laws to align with the advancements of the digital era.

In short, the act has three main pieces of legislation, which help artists get paid easier when their music is streamed online, allows artists who recorded tracks before 1972 get paid when their music is streamed online and helps artists and sound engineers get paid easier when their music is streamed on satellite radio services.

The bill was desperately needed as legislation around royalties had not been updated since the streaming revolution. Recording Industry Association of America president Mitch Glazier said in a statement, “The Music Modernization Act is now the law of the land, and thousands of songwriters and artists are better for it,”.

In other news, Kanye West hugged and met with President Trump today to discuss prison reform and other issues. Read more about this fever dream of a meeting here.
