NAB Runs Ad Opposing Performance Royalty

The National Association of Broadcasters ran print advertisements (PDF) this week applauding 218 members of Congress for supporting H. Con. Res. 244 and S. Con. Res. 82.

Those resolutions oppose RIAA-backed legislation that would require broadcasters to compensate record labels for radio airplay of music. The ad ran in “Roll Call,” “Politico,” “The Hill,” “Congress Daily” and “CQ.”

The ad preceded a House subcommittee hearing on the Performance Rights Act, which if passed, would impose a performance royalty on terrestrial stations.
