From PASTE magazine:

On Tuesday, the Senate unanimously passed the bi-partisan Music Modernization Act (MMA), renaming it the Orrin G. Hatch Music Modernization Act after the senator who championed the bill.

The bill, co-sponsored by more than 80 senators, proposes three major changes to how music copyright is currently handed under federal law and has the aim of adapting copyright to the age of digital streaming. Many on the side of music creation have advocated for the changes proposed in the bill.

The MMA aims to change Section 115 of the U.S. Copyright Act, now creating a single entity through which all mechanical reproduction rights for digital uses of music compositions (read: the licenses used for interactive streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify) would be administered. It also sets out to repeal Section 114(i) of the U.S. Copyright Act, which deals with how judges are assigned in royalty rate-setting cases.

Through the inclusion of the AMP Act, the MMA adds record producers and engineers to U.S. copyright law. This means that, for the first time, there would be a codified right for producers to collect digital royalties, as well as a uniform process for studio professionals to receive royalties for their role in music creation.

How does this affect RP? I can't find the old thread.

South Carolina electronics company in district that Trump budget chief Mick Mulvaney represented in Congress gets an exemption from new China tariffs


A television assembly company in a South Carolina county that Office of Management and Budget Chief Mick Mulvaneyrepresented in Congress has won an exemption from new tariffs that the Trump administration is imposing on goods made in China.

The decision to grant a waiver to Element Electronics of Winnsboro, South Carolina, led the firm to reverse its previously announced decision to close its plant, which employs more than 130 people, in the face of looming tariffs.

Element is the only assembler of televisions located in the United States. The company uses TV components that are made in China.

 

"Element Electronics is currently and will continue to do business throughout the U.S. with its many incredible retail partners," a company representative said in a statement emailed to CNBC. "While there have been some recent changes to its South Carolina assembly facility, that will not impact the tremendous commitment the company has to provide great products and incredible support to all consumers."
