The article reports on the issue regarding the exclusion of public performance of sound recordings the 1976 Copyright Act in the U.S. It notes that recording artists urged the performance rights to be extended to sound recordings claiming that the exclusion could hurt the music business' financial security which will result in fewer outstanding talents. However, the National Association of Broadcasters also argues that extending performance right will drive radio stations out of business. Meanwhile, in relation with libraries, it says that performance right will not affect librarians and educators because Section 110 exempts the performance of copyrighted works by instructors in face-to-face educational settings.
