Show Support for Turtles Victory

In September, the 1960s band The Turtles won a critical legal victory in their lawsuit against Sirius XM. The Turtles sued because Sirius XM has taken the position that it doesn't need permission - and therefore doesn't need to pay for use of - pre-1972 recordings protected under state law, even though it does pay for post-1972 recordings that are protected by federal law. This relates to an issue that SoundExchange has long been fighting - the failure of some large digital radio services to pay for the use of such vintage recordings. We think Sirius XM's position is wrong as a matter of law, and definitely wrong as a matter of justice!

On the Hill & In the Know
Congressional Rewind: Abbreviated September Session

During the week of September 15, the House Judiciary Committee held two copyright hearings. The first hearing was part of the Committee's comprehensive copyright review and discussed a provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that prohibits people from circumventing technical protection measures. This makes it illegal for pirates to even decrypt digital copyrighted works, often the first step before making an illegal copy. The second was an oversight hearing on the Copyright Office, where Maria Pallante, Register of Copyrights, testified. Pallante focused on bringing the Copyright Office into the 21st Century, with Committee Members agreeing that there is a need to update and modernize the Copyright Office.  

Congress has now left town to focus on the November election. They will make their way back to Washington, D.C. after voters have their say, for one last shot at getting their business done before the 113th Congress comes to an end.
