ABSTRACT
The article reports on the relevance of the U.S. Performance Rights Act granting royalties to performers on a recorded work of music when played on radio. It notes that the National Association of Broadcasters fights for the bill and a competing bill which prohibits the Congress from any royalty addition to what radio pays. It points out that most first-world nations resist paying the share it earned by American musical performers since there is no payment reciprocity to their native talents.
