at The Recording Academy®'s annual GRAMMYs on the Hill® Advocacy Day, which brought more than 100 music creators from across the country to Washington, D.C. on April 6 to visit with lawmakers and bring music issues to the frontlines in hopes that Congress will better understand how these issues impact music creators nationwide. Bills discussed included the Fair Play Fair Pay Act, which seeks to reform music licensing for sound recordings in a logical, comprehensive way and close current corporate radio loopholes, as well as the Allocation for Music Producers Act (AMP Act), which includes producers in copyright law for the first time. For more information about The Academy's advocacy efforts, visit grammy.com/action, and follow the online conversation on Twitter @GRAMMYAdvocacy, #SupportMusic, and "like" GRAMMY Advocacy on Facebook.
