NRB Opposes Nadler Performance Royalty Bill

August 22, 2012

The National Religious Broadcasters opposes the draft legislation revealed this week that would tie broadcast streaming to performance royalties.

NRB President/CEO Dr. Frank Wright says the monetary requirements from the draft legislation from New York  Rep. Jerrold Nadler would be a “crushing blow” many Christian radio broadcasters.

The demonstrable value of radio airtime is ignored by many advocates of a new over-the-air performance “tax,” according to Wright, who adds that musicians receive free airplay by radio, boosting recognition and sales of their work.
