Paul Williams Stands Up For “True Value Of Contributors”

“It’s no secret to those of us who make our living creating music that many of the powerful corporate interests that control the flow of music online want to pay less for the right to play copyrighted music… We simply want to be compensated in a way that reflects the true value of our contribution to these music businesses” said Paul Williams, the Oscar, GRAMMY and Golden Globe-winning Hall of Fame songwriter who is also the President & Chairman of the Board at ASCAP in a recent letter to The Hill.

As they celebrate 100 years of fighting for songwriters’ rights, this is just the latest example of ASCAP working to “create a more modern and efficient music licensing system that works better for all stakeholders.”
