American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) has added its support to the #LoveMusic campaign fighting for passage of an EU proposal to modernize copyright and limit the "safe harbor" provisions that often allow YouTube, Google and other tech platforms to exploit musician’s work without proper permissions and compensation.
The EU parliament will vote on the provision on September 12th.
From the A2IM blog:
"We urgently need your help to stop that happening and to ensure musicians, creators and everyone in our world-beating music industry are not denied a fair reward for their work"
