TAKE THIS QUICK SURVEY: If the download mechanical rate isn’t 9.1¢, what should it be?

A survey being conducted by a number of global songwriter groups along with MusicTechPolicy asks what you think the new un-frozen mechanical royalty rate should be since the U.S. Copyright Royalty Judges rejected the settlement that would have extended the 9.1¢ freeze.

If the rate isn’t 9.1¢ anymore, what should it be?

This 3 minuite Survey Monkey questionnaire is anonymous and easy to take and you’ll be helping songwriters by giving your opinion on what the rate should be.

We will post the results.
