The Music Modernization Act (“MMA”) marks the latest evolution in U.S. Copyright law. By closing loopholes, streamlining the collection and payments of royalties, and reducing uncertainty for music streaming services, the MMA helps evolve copyright law for the next generation. A nuanced understanding of the MMA's twists and turns is essential to make sure creative professionals take full advantage of their new rights. Join us for an informative workshop to learn what you need to know about the MMA.
