On Copyright

Future of Music Coalition respects intellectual property and copyright. We believe that musicians and songwriters must have the ability to be compensated for their work, regardless of where or how that work is used or accessed.

We also recognize that creators are not a monolithic group, and may have a variety of perspectives on issues at the intersection of copyright and technology. That’s why we think it is so important that the artist perspective is represented in debates about intellectual property in the information age. read more

Rock the Net

The internet is crucial to musicians and other creators. It lets everyone have a voice and is a powerful engine for free expression, creativity and commerce. Creators must be able to compete on a level technological playing field alongside the biggest companies. This is why we need basic rules to ensure that all users can access the lawful content and run the legal applications and devices of their choice.

In 2010, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took an important step towards keeping the internet accessible to all. Those rules have since been overturned in a court decision that could be devastating to for musicians and fans. read more
