Professor Rex Glensy Discusses Effects of Radio Royalties on Music Business

June 14, 2010

Professor Rex Glensy discusses the potential effect radio performance royalties could have on record contracts in "Recording Artists and Radio Stations Fight Over Royalties, Air Play and Spin," an article in the June 13, 2010, Cleveland Plain Dealer.

A bill before Congress aims to provide royalties to artists and record companies when their music is played on the radio.

Director of the Earle Mack School of Law's Intellectual Property Program and a former entertainment lawyer, Glensy states that changes to copyright will affect multiple areas of business, with record companies potentially wanting to renegotiate contracts with performers.
