Texas Governor Greg Abbott Urges U.S. DOJ To Reconsider Changes To PRO Licensing Model
With so many unhappy with the Department of Justice's recent alteration to the Performing Rights Organization licensing model, Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently sent a letter to Attorney General Lynch urging reconsideration of the decision.
In this recent post on MusicThinkTank from the Texas Music Office, we look at a letter recently sent to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, requesting that the Department of Justice change their recent decision for the benefit of musicians everywhere.
"The proposed change would:
-Discourage songwriters from collaborating with artists under different PROs
-Force PROs to build new accounting tools, disrupting partnerships throughout the music industry
-Increase administrative costs for PROs and music artists"
