Radio Fair Play

By now you might have seen the Radio Fair Play information and petition we’ve been sharing, calling for a change to the Copyright Act to ensure artists and rights holders are paid fairly for recordings broadcast on radio. Music industry representatives including PPCA’s first artist Chair Josh Pyke and artist KLP, walked the halls of Parliament House last week to meet with members of Government and Parliament to advocate for this change. Let's take action! 📢 Sign the petition before it closes 28 June and share these assets today!
