The INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENT RECORDING ARTISTS will join in the effort to obtain payment for performers whose songs are played over the airwaves, by supporting The Performance Right Act (H.R. 848).
COO MARK CARMAN said, "Now is the right time for IAIRA to get involved. Never before have we been so close to getting artists fair pay for their work from radio broadcasters. IAIRA is encouraging all of its members to call and write their representatives in support of H.R. 848. We also encourage them to support other leaders in this fight such as MUSICFIRST. Their work on this issue has been tireless."
