NAB Wants House Hearing On Artist-Label Relationship
October 4, 2007 at 11:58 AM (PT)
NAB Pres./CEO DAVID K. REHR has asked House Intellectual Property Subcommittee Chairman HOWARD BERMAN (D-CA) for a hearing to explore the relationship between recording artists and their record labels.
"A hearing that includes the RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA and the four major record labels would allow members of the Subcommittee to explore more thoroughly the typical business practices of the recording industry and the dynamics of the relationships between the performers and the record labels," wrote REHR in a letter to BERMAN. "If the goal is to improve the circumstances of performers and build the cadre of music into the future, the relationship between performers and record labels also bears examination."
